In this video I show how to make an inexpensive Astrolabe for astronomy projects. List of what you will need:
A print out from this link:http://cse.ssl.berkeley.edu/AtHomeAst...
A pen, A weight with a hole in the center, about 13 inches or 32 centimeters of thread, A drinking straw, A sheet of cardboard, Some scissors (heavy duty if possible), Either packing/duct tape or paste/glue, And something to punch a whole.
Make sure to keep you work space clean and be safe with sharp objects.
