    Anything specific?

    Suggest you look through the "Astronomy Photos" on site here, but before you download anything I suggest you ask permission. Just do the poster the courtesy of asking if it is OK to print their photos (PM is a good idea) I really doubt anyone will deny you for your purposes, but you should ask.

    Look up "Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive." It has a fabulous treasure trove of high-quality images that you could use. I don't think it's proprietary, though, so you can probably use the images at will--especially for a school project. If you were going to use them in a published article or for anything that would net you $$, you'd probably want to secure permission.

    Last year I went to a camp called the space camp organized by space camp India - spacecampindia.com, it just exceeded all expectations. We were there for a week; we learnt about rocketry, we were allowed to experience the Zero-G simulator and we did the moon walk. You can log on to our Facebook group called ‘Spacecampindia’ and there are plenty of pictures there you can use.
