Spectroscopes allow you to see how white light is made up of a whole spectrum of colors.
As part of our Reading Colors Your World summer programming for school-age children, SCCLD's STEAM Club is offering a video showing you how to make a spectroscope. This video will premiere on the SCCLD page of Facebook on Tuesday, July 6th at 3 p.m. There are special kits available while supplies last at the SCCLD libraries, and here are some supplies to gather if you don't have these kits:
- paper towel tube
- aluminum foil
- diffraction sheet (available through this link)
- tape (masking or clear)
In the meantime, you can read and view material about how fascinating light and color are with these resources available at the library:
Enjoy exploring, and we look forward to making spectroscopes with you Monday, June 21 at 3 p.m.!
