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?
