This is an activity about spectroscopy. Learners make their own spectroscope and measure the wavelengths of spectral lines. Then, they will record the colors, patterns, and wavelengths of the lines from various light sources. This activity requires... (View More)

This is an activity about telescopes. Learners will first measure several circles to determine their diameters and calculate their areas. Afterwards, they will cover each circle entirely with pennies and record how many pennies are needed for each... (View More)
