Abstract

We describe the current programmes and future plans of the Faulkes Telescope Project (in the UK and Europe) and Las Cumbres Global Telescope. Within the UK FTP is running a number of educational programmes, including Down-to-Earth, Astronomy to a Captive Audience, and the National Redshift Project that complement the original telescope-based education activities. By engaging learners in "real science", and potentially working alongside "real scientists", we hope to motivate and inspire the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.
