Celebrate the contributions of women astronomers and make your own spectrometer using a cookie or cereal box and diffraction grating slides.
|Hints for uses in your library||You may need to troubleshoot your spectroscope. If you don’t see a broadband of colors, try rotating the diffraction grating 90° (1/4 turn). If the slit is too wide, use pieces of black electrical tape to make it narrower and crisper.|
