Student testimonials

The James Webb Space Telescope project was a fun project. The best part of the project was being able to pick our field of research. This allowed people to do what they like and want to do.

This project in my opinion was very educational and fun at the same time. I learned a lot about space and the history of it. I was very interested in learning more about the origin and beginning of the universe.

Educator testimonial

I was extremely impressed by the output my students created. I am always looking for new ways to get students excited about space science and technology, and this project was an excellent opportunity to connect the concepts that we were learning about in class to a real-world engineering application. I provided very little structure for the assignment, but the students took the vague ideas I gave them and ran with it far beyond my expectations.
