Program Summary
Permission to Dream aims to excite the next generation of students (and space explorers!) via real astronomy exploration.

Since it's founding in 2001, PTD has donated telescopes to 25 groups in 13 countries on 6 continents!

Participating schools pledge to hold regular observation nights with their students, and explore the sky using online
missions PTD has developed.

The students will conduct and record their observations and compare them with their local and global teammates.

We hope that by exploring the universe together, we can bring Planet Earth together as well.

Program Objectives
Introduce students to science and technology career possibilities.
Deepen students' knowledge of science, math, history, engineering, geography, and social studies.
Connect students and teachers with astronomy experts.
Provide telescopes, training, and lesson plans to classrooms around the world.
