Educator testimonial

My students enjoyed learning about the James Webb Space Telescope and how it will impact future science exploration and discoveries in their lifetime. As a first grade teacher, I was excited and intrigued to see their interests spark, as my students came up with thought-provoking questions, utilized their note-taking skills, and displayed high-level comprehension, while learning about the James Webb Space Telescope.
