Learn all about SOLAR ASTRONOMY with Supercharged Science!
 
We only have 2 more astronomy lessons to go this week! Today it's solar astronomy, and tomorrow we're going to focus on starlight, and both days have super-cool hands-on science experiments!
 
MATERIALS for THURSDAY (today) & FRIDAY (tomorrow):
• Old CD
• Ruler
• Cardboard paper towel tube
• Foil pr paper/tape
• Something that melts easily, like a GIANT bar of chocolate, a plate of thinly sliced cheese, peanut butter spread on a plate and refrigerated, marshmallows….
 
Today we're going to make a scientific instrument called a "spectrometer" to break light into visible patterns so we can tell what elements are present. Tomorrow I will show you how to measure the speed of light using a bar of chocolate!
