Mary Alice’s Senior Project
Mary Alice Schultz attends Brashier middle college Charter high school. She decided to build a reflector telescope for her senior project. The intention of the senior project is to allow graduating seniors the opportunity to demonstrate their skills for independent learning. Her final grade for this project will be Portfolio, project and presentation. She asked for RMA to mentor her in construction and presentation of her telescope. Thanks Mary Alice for asking us to help you with this project! Click here to see the full gallery
