Spectroclick – Classroom Spectrometry Kit

Project Description

Introduce Spectroscopy with this fun hands-on spectrometry kit and comprehensive curriculum guide for students of all ages.
The SpectroClick Kit is a classroom spectroscopy kit that introduces students of all levels to Spectrometry – the fundamental concepts of light and measurement- through personal observation. Students are provided all of the components of a rudimentary spectrometer, which they assemble. They observe spectra through a diffraction grating and compare clear and colored samples. Advanced students may use free software to interpret spectra.  The SpectroClick Spectrometry and spectroscopy Kit includes one complete set of components and the 16-page instruction booklet. The SpectroClick Kit is intended for classroom use under adult supervision.
Advanced spectrometry y kit activities allow students to use free Spectroscopy Kit software to interpret spectra with Windows XP, OSX or Linux. 

NGSS Connections HS-PS3: Energy

By relating the structure of the atom to spectral signatures (absorption and emission lines)

HS-PS3: Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.

Hands-on Spectroscopy/spectroscopy Experiments include:

Elementary School Spectrometry Kit Activities
View room lights and LED spectra with diffraction grating
Prepare and view clear and color samples; compare spectra visually

Secondary/Middle School Spectrometry Kit Activities
View room lights and LED spectra with diffraction grating
Prepare and view clear and color samples; compare spectra visually
Prepare diluted samples, compare spectra

Advanced High School Spectrometry Kit Activities

Prepare and view clear and color samples; compare spectra visually

Prepare diluted samples, compare spectra
Upload digital photos to software that compares spectra
