Astronomy in the Classroom
Today I went to a school and worked with a science teacher as part of Project Astro to teach some astronomy related material to two classes of fifth graders. Great kids to work with - really curious and smart as a whip. They had all kinds of really good questions. I talked about how telescopes worked - those with lenses, and those with mirrors. They got to handle lenses and mirrors, and to look through one of my telescopes at a photograph of Saturn taped to the wall down the hall. Then they had to write about what they saw. It was such a rewarding day to be around such bright and interested children.
