On a recent drive through the country, we found this satellite dish. It is hard to tell from the picture how huge it is, I believe the area of the dish is several football fields!
So, what are these dishes used for? Why are they called “satellite dishes?” How are they constructed? Are they always round? What are some jobs associated with satellite dishes?
Read about satellite dishes. Write about their uses. Calculate their different sizes (area, perimeter, radius, circumference…) Build a model. Write a sci-fi story. (ET Phone Home!)
So many authentic projects…
