Student testimonials

I thought that the JWST project was an amazing way to help learn more about telescopes.

The JWST is really cool. I did not know that there was a telescope that big. The part I found most interesting was that it has all those mirrors.

Educator testimonial

I was very pleased to have offered this project in addition to our solar system curriculum. The students had a high interest in this project which led to engaging discussions and ultimately more research into the project. This resulted in a deeper understanding of the science, technology and engineering skills needed to build the JWST.
