The One Week Galileoscope Program

The Galileoscope lends itself to extended learning experiences. It can be used to cover topics in physics, astronomy, and history. You can spend a few days building and exploring with the Galileoscope or you can undertake long-term observation projects.

This section of the web site outlines what you can do in the course of a week. It touches on a variety of topics and culminates with students planning and making their own observations with the Galileoscope.

The culminating activity on day 5 is a star party where students make observations with the Galileoscope. You can involve parents and families in this event. When planning your Galileoscope week, look at the school calendar. Many schools plan star parties in conjunction with science fairs, engineering week or other special events when many families are already on campus.
