Joanne and Patrick Poitevin provide telescopes for special educational needs schools and hospitals

Aiming to inspire ISTOCK.COM/FRANKRAMSPOTT

ASTRONOMY IS OUR HOBBY. Over the years, we have travelled all around the world to view solar eclipses, planetary transits and much more besides. As time went by, because we enjoyed it so much, we felt that children with special educational needs (SEN) and vulnerable adults should also be given the chance to look through a  telescope and explore the Moon, the planets and the stars. Because astronomy equipment is expensive, many schools and colleges are unable to afford even a fairly basic telescope. We started the project Scopes4SEN some three years ago, to give children with special needs the chance to stargaze with their own telescope at their school or college.
