 What’s latitude, and how do you find it?   Ms. Lisa is eager to explain the North Star and latitude to her apprentice astronomers, Maryam and Rani.  With a simple printout and tool, they’ll be able to discover how far north or south they are.  Follow the step-by-step instructions to build a latitude locator along with them so you can use it, too!

Astronomer’s Toolbox is a hands-on introduction to astronomy and engineering that mixes charming characters, unique storylines, and step-by-step instructions.  Our novel approach introduces the wonderful universe beyond our Earth and shows how, with a little creativity, we can design ingenious tools from household items.  Follow the adventures of Rani and Maryam, two curious kids who apprentice themselves to Ms. Lisa and uncover the wonders of space.  As they design tools like a telescope and a latitude locator, each book provides clear instructions for young astronomers to follow along at home and create their own astronomer’s toolbox.
