This Monday (the 22nd) I’m going to be in my oldest daughter’s classroom at her school. I’ve reserved two solar telescopes from FPOA; A TeleVue Solaris telescope (like this one) as well as a Celestron C90 with a solar filter.
I’ve also prepared some brief background information on stellar evolution, as well as some comparisons between sizes of stars, the H-R diagram, etc. It ought to be a lot of fun, for the students and for me. This is a 5th grade GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) classroom, so the kids are very sharp.
