Draco Productions made 100 STEM spyglasses for elementary schools in Puerto Rico.  Mike Simmons and Greetchen Diaz coordinated the distribution and spanish language instructions for the 20x30 erect image scopes.  Jerry Oltion of Sky and Telescope loved the fact that a good basic scope could be made for under $25, and that the construction could be used as an educational project on optics for school classes and Astronomy and Earth Day activities for whole families.  For more information on how to build these spyglasses, link to:
