Student testimonial

When we made our James Webb Telescope we used recycled and used the materials to create our model. I enjoyed this because I like space. I enjoyed this because I was involved in the action. I liked working in small groups with my friends.

Educator testimonial

This was another opportunity for me to show my students another practical application for what we learn in the regular lessons. It also creates opportunities for small group problem solving.
