Build Your Own Telescope is a telescope-building kit that teaches people how to build their own telescope. It is a do-it-yourself kind of project that appears in the episode "Overbooked."
The kit is packaged in a brown rectangular box. The box's lid has the kit's name on the top in dark brown, along with a picture of a telescope inside a gray burst shape. On the side of the lid, the word "telescope" appears in pink.
It also includes a Telescope Assembly Manual that talks about the steps on how to make a telescope.
Role in episode
SpongeBob attempts to use it to build the telescope to complete his employee report card, as the "do a laborious task for supervisor" box hasn't been checked and he builds it for him.
- According to page 472, section C-17 of the Telescope Assembly Manual, it says one needs a right-angled motorized hex drill to assemble the telescope.
