To educate students about science, optics and
astronomy, the OSA Foundation has established a program to donate hundreds of telescopes
to students in the Milwaukee area. Through a partnership with the Institute for
the Transformation of Learning and a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation,
the foundation will donate nearly 500 “Galileoscopes” as well as books
and DVDs about Galileo Galilei and astronomy to six local middle, junior high and
high schools as part of its program called the Galileoscope Challenge.
