This resource is a one-week experiential learning module for high school physics on the topic of spectroscopy. Students create a spectrograph prototype using their calculation of the angle that light is transmitted through a holographic diffraction grating. They then develop a ground-or-space-based mission to accommodate their spectrograph design.  Extensive background information is provided, along with printable student worksheets.  **NOTE: A basic understanding of trigonometry is a prerequisite.

This resource is part of the TeachEngineering digital library, which provides teacher-tested lessons designed to connect real-world experiences with curricular content in the K-12 science/math classroom.
