Student testimonials

Before starting our project on the James Webb Telescope, I didn’t even know what it was. I learned all about how they had to invent so many different things just to begin the project. My teacher told us about how it has united a bunch of different places because we need knowledge from all over.

I didn’t even know that such a thing like the James Webb Telescope existed. However, when I heard about JWST, and what it’s supposed to do, I was thrilled. I was thrilled about what it can do, and I was thrilled about how it’ll affect the future. Then, by making our video, I felt like I was actually supporting the JWST.
