The growth of light pollution in all our major cities is denying our youth access to the night sky. In the past the night sky was a source of inspiration to countless generations and more recently an interest in astronomy and the sciences, maths, computing, engineering and technologies that support astronomy has led many into careers in those subjects. Light pollution is destroying this link. Robotic telescopes offer a new way of rebuilding the link for all school students, revealing once again the joys of the night sky, and helping to bring more bright young minds into careers that are central to economic growth.
