Cut Out SKA Dish
Make your very own SKA dish.
The SKA mid frequency dishes will adorn the South African desert regions, combining to make the largest telescope ever constructed, the Square Kilometre Array. Here you can cut out and make your own model of the SKA, perfect for classroom activities. Making multiple telescopes, you can work out the best way to arrange them to maximise the amount of signal they can collect.

Now imagine thousands of these spread across the desert each 15m in diameter!
