    What People Are Saying

    Most fun we had all year

  • This kit worked well for us. It takes some practice to use the spectroscope, and it works best to use this in a darkened room when trying to identify elements. We could have used more wooden splints, but there is plenty of each chemical in the kit. Home Science Tools makes the most usable science kits we've tried.
    An inexpensive way to look at elements

  • This activity was a great, inexpensive substitute for element tubes. My class was able to use them to learn about the life cycles of stars and for the first time, understood how we know what stars are made of.

  • I FOUND I HAD TO HAVE A BOOK TO HELP IDENIFY SOME OF THE SUBSTANCES,BUT ENJOY MY DEVICE IN LEARNING ABOUT THE SPECTRUM AND HOW IT RELATES TO THE PROPERTIES OF SPECTRUM IN IN-,ORGANIC ELEMENTS AS FAR AS ORGANIC MOLECULAR STUCTURES YOU MUST FIRST IDENIFY THE ELEMENTS FIRST IF YOU CAN'T FIND THEM SOME OTHER WAY. I HOPE HOME SCIENCE WILL CONSIDER PERHAPS SOME MORE BOOKS ON PHYSICS AND SCIENCES FOR LITTLE BETTER ADVANCE WRITE THEM IF YOU AGREE.

      Spectroscope Analysis Kit

      Explore the science of spectroscopy as you watch elements burn with brightly-colored flames, each producing a unique light spectrum! Scientists use spectroscopy to determine what elements are present in stars, among other things. With this kit you'll be able to observe the wide variety of light spectra produced from different elements, and even find out what elements are used in your neighborhood street lights.

      Kit includes a quantitative spectroscope, a study guide with data sheets and review questions, wooden splints, and four different chloride salts: calcium, potassium, strontium and lithium. 

      This might help you come up with a good science fair project: How could you demonstrate how astronomers use spectroscope technology to identify the composition of stars?
