Title:WS: Build Your Own Refractor Telescope AND Take it With You (W202)
Description:In this double session workshop, you will build your own small refractor telescope out of PVC material. This telescope is perfect for viewing the moon! All supplies and lenses are included and the telescope is yours to take home. The focus of the design and the workshop is to learn about telescopes and demystify them for your students. This simple telescope was designed to keep the cost under $50 so you can make it a hands-on STEM project in your middle school or high school science classroom.
