The Fingerprint of the Stars: An Astronomy Lab On Spectroscopy

P. D. M. Mondim, F. A. L. Pires, R. S. S. C. Reis

Many Portuguese schools are not equipped to carry out the mandatory experimental activities covered by the school curriculum. In order to remedy this deficiency, the Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto (CAUP) has developed hands-on laboratories, offering schools several different experimental activities. This article will focus on one of these experiments, in which students build a spectroscope and use it to analyse different spectra. Pupils learn not only the practical methods of science but also the astronomical and everyday applications of spectroscopy.
