Astronomical telescope donated to Cocalico SD
Randy and Roberta Maurer have generously donated a Mead Astronomical ETX Telescope to the Cocalico School District. This telescope has thousands of space objects programmed into it, and with the touch of a button the telescope can automatically locate the object for optimal viewing. The Maurers have been inviting teacher Bryan Strohl’s 3rd grade classes from Denver Elementary to their house for the past 7 years to view space objects using their observatory they have attached to their house.
The students have enjoyed looking at various stars, planets, and the moon using the larger telescope (with the same optics as the Hubble Space Telescope) during this evening field trip. Following this year’s trip, the Maurers decided to donate a telescope to the school district. The telescope will be given to the astronomy teachers to use with their classes. Mr. Strohl’s students have greatly benefited from the Maurers’ willingness to invite these students to their house, and now many future students will benefit from the ability to use this high-tech telescope in their astronomy classes.
