Telescope Building

posted Dec 8, 2015, 9:14 AM by mrswebmaster millers run
Fifth grade scientists, middle school science teacher Marji Schlitt and Ms. Bower, are exploring our Earth and Space unit, learning about space, stars, and associated technologies.  We are currently learning about this unit through the history and mechanics of telescopes.  We hope to build at least two class telescopes, with an ultimate goal of stargazing in the spring.  The associated Next Generation Science Standards are available for viewing below.  If there is anyone in the community who enjoys building things, space exploration, or working with kids to help us with this project, please contact Marji Schlitt, or "M," at  We hope to begin collaborating telescope blueprints and begin building late this week. Thank you!
