This DIY science project will change how you look at light. A spectrometer is a device that separates the wavelengths of light. Using a cereal box and a used CD, we’ll build one and see how different types of light sources make different wavelengths of light.

Registration required. Please call the Meijer Branch at (517) 788-4480 to save a spot.
