Overview

Students researched about how the James Webb Space Telescope would use infrared light to observe the cosmos by looking through gas and dust. The students then constructed space telescopes out of food.


Student testimonial

I like that the James Webb does not see the dust cloud and can see something different than us.

Educator testimonial

What an amazing experience for my students. We began our study learning about the Hubble Telescope. We were amazed to see the photos from space from the Hubble, and now we can look forward in the future to the amazing pictures from deep space. How exciting to finish our unit today with learning about the James Webb Space Telescope and creating a food model of the telescope. I know that my students were excited about their learning experience. It was priceless!
