In the Light and Sound course, we built our own version of a spectrograph to advance our understanding on how light works. A spectrograph is used in space to help scientists understand the properties of atmospheres, planets and stars.

We built the spectrograph to find out how light is reflected to different light sources and how colors are extracted to light. We tested it on three different lights sources in order for our spectrograph to make a rainbow.

For this project we had a team partner in order to design and build a better spectrograph. We improved the original template to make it smaller and more compact. I learner that there are light that we can’t see but animals might see. Below is my slide rocket.
