Student testimonials

This is what I learned. The sun will expand but not explode to destroy us all!! The scope is the part that will let you see things that are far away and can’t be seen with the human eye!

The project was fun, creative, amazing and very interesting. I hope I will get to do more projects like this in the future.

Educator testimonial

I was very happy with the effort put forth by the students. Overall, I feel this was a rewarding activity for the students. They learned about the JWST’s mission as well as their individual topic. Hopefully we inspired a life-long curiosity about the universe.
