Hubble Telescope Model
Instructions to build the Hubble Telescope model are found here. Be sure and shrink the model to 75% its full model size if you would like to fit the model onto the Fun Flyer wand to demonstrate how electrostatic charge would be transferred to the solar panels. Have students gently touch the solar panels after you have engaged the wand for a few seconds. If you have a low humidity day, it can be a little shocking!
