The Arecibo Observatory

We visited the largest Radio Telescope in the world today.  It measures 1000 feet in diameter.  This telescope was originally built to study our atmosphere but later scientists learned that it can also be used to study other objects in space.  The students in the picture are observing how clouds are formed.

Observing the elements chart.

           Here we can see Xing, Mengi, Ashley, and Elided working on the bus.  Everyone was required to take notes during the tours, complete assignments, and update their journals after each activity.
           Some couldn't keep up!
