Bay Area Project ASTRO Workshops

Build Your Own Telescope!

Using the Galileoscope to Teach Light and Optics in the Classroom

Learn about how telescopes work and how to use the Galileoscope in your classroom. Through hands-on activities in light and optics, workshop participants will learn about the behavior of light and build their own Galileoscope, modeled on the telescope Galileo used to observe mountains on the Moon, the moons of Jupiter, the phases of Venus, and more! Each teacher participant will receive a set of Galileoscopes for use in their classroom. Space is limited so register early!

Target Audience: 3rd – 9th grade teachers; interested educators of all grade levels
Cost: $30
