Sun, Spectra, and Stars

Get ready to spark interest in electromagnetic radiation! This resource shares nine indelible inquiries that you can choose from to ignite understanding of spectra and the relationship between light and heat. The assessments that follow the activities encourage young scientists to apply critical-thinking skills to the practical use of spectra in studying stars or identifying unknown compounds. The lessons can be used in a chemistry class when investigating properties of matter or in an astronomy course when learning about stars.
