Student testimonials

I learned that the James Webb Space Telescope sees in infrared. When we made our model of the telescope it was so fun and I learned a lot about the design. I hope we get to do it again.

Educator testimonial

Our science club had a lot of fun researching the James Webb telescope. We compared the Hubble to the James Webb and did experiments with mirrors and explored different types of light and wavelengths. My students were very excited to create their own replica of the telescope. They also created an informational bulletin board that is displayed in the center hallway of our school.
