There is this neat program which is partially supported with funding from the National Science Foundation called SCOPE. The Stellar Classification Online Public Exploration program. Here they give people the chance to classify stars!

This is an awesome way to keep kids (and adults) involved with space exploration. It’s free to register, and by doing so, will give you and/or your kid an opportunity to explore stars! My 6 year old boy classified 4 stars this morning and was totally into it! We made it extra fun by letting him add a name to that star under the comment portion of each star cassification. He loves it!
