More Spiders in Space!

My second week with the Spiders consisted of building and using a simple telescope and learning about visible and invisible light.  The Spiders learned to center and focus their telescopes.  They also found out that the lens of the telescope turns images upside down!  Very curious.... 

Also, if you are interested in telescopes, the Maryland Science Center offers FREE STARGAZING  on Friday nights from 5:30pm to 9:00pm on their rooftop Observatory.  Call 410-545-2999 before your visit to check on viewing conditions.

During our experiments with visible and invisible light, the Spiders used different materials
to see which blocks a certain type of light and which lets it through.  The record of their experiments is shown below.  A job well-done, Spiders!
