Student testimonials

I thought doing the project was pretty fun. Sometimes when we were building our model, I wondered how hard it might be to build the real James Webb. I am looking forward to building more telescope projects.

I thought the project was fun, exciting, and educational. It was fun to do it because we built the telescope with all our friends. The project was educational because we learned more about the James Webb Telescope, how it is being built, and how it works.

Educator testimonial

Pondering the heavens, opens a universe of inspiration. If we are to bequeath new, rapidly emerging technology to succeeding generations; it is imperative that they develop the relevant prerequisite skills at a young age. Thus, our children need outstanding teachers and access to experts and liaisons of various fields.
