As part of a partnership with JLG Industries, we are also offering a free telescope building STEM kit that includes materials to help you try your own STEM activities at home.  A limited number of kits will be available for pickup to all registrants at the planetarium from 8:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. on Monday, January 25th and from 8:30 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 26th.  If you are a teacher within Washington County, email roberali@wcps.k12.md.us to arrange delivery of materials to your school.  Please allow 3-4 school days for delivery to be made.

If you don’t plan to pick up a kit, you can use a 1 ½” magnifying glass, a 2 ½” magnifying glass, and a cardboard tube like a paper towel roll tube to build the telescope we will be making.
