On the 4th of July, 2019, Muslim Explorers and Pak Astronomers Islamabad joined hands to conduct a Telescope Making Workshop for kids in Islamabad. The participants were given a brief introduction about Galilean Telescopes. They were then provided “Telescope Making Kits” especially designed by Pak Astronomers for kids between ages 10 to 16. The kids then built their very own telescopes.
On the 5th of July, a detailed lecture and talk on Astronomy was held. Using modern educational props and physical models of celestial bodies, motorized models of the Solar System and relevant math problems to solve, the kids were given a detailed introduction to basic astronomy.
