James Webb Space Telescope: Vibration Design Testing
Aimed at upper primary learners this resource provides a design and technology activity based on the challenges engineers and space scientists faced whilst working on the creation of the telescope. Children design and make a model telescope to be launched into space. They carry out vibration tests, then modify their structures to ensure that they can withstand a simulated launch.
