Starwaders is presenting Telescope Building Classes at Experilab, Atterbury Boulevard, Pretoria.
Each participant builds the Galilean Telescope which of course they take home to look at the Moon or on holiday to see whales and wild animals. The cost per child is R70 - recommended for ages 10 to 15. Booking at Experilab:- 012-361-1134.
The first workshop was held on 14 December. The children were amazed at how they could read letters through the telescope which were impossible to recognize with the naked-eye on a chart 70 meters away!
