Description:

This hands-on astronomy activity allows you to create a “cutaway” telescope to clearly show how reflector and refractor telescopes work. Learners will understand more about how telescopes work, the differences between telescopes made with mirrors and those made with lenses, and how we are continuing the tradition of Galileo and Newton in building new telescopes today. The 48-page PDF contains step-by-step instructions, photos and illustrations, presentation tips, background information, and ready-to-print handouts.
