Think of astronomy and starry nights, and telescopes may well come to mind.
PI in the Sky was written for teachers who have access to neither of these commodities.
The activities are designed for daylight hours (except for a couple of short homework assignments) using materials commonly found in schools or, when necessary, in the local hardware store.
The goals of this project are for students to: construct accurate and lasting mental images of our neighbourhood in space, see how scientific knowledge is obtained, gain a sense of the unlimited potential for exploration of our world that is possible with only the simplest equipment, and to enhance the students' self-images.
