Something about me.

How to make a CD-cereal box spectrometer:  This is another extra credit option. To get the extra credit do the following 1) make the spectrometer, 2) look at some different light sources (don't look directly at the sun), 3) draw up the spectra seen, 4) show someone else (like a significant other, friend, or relative) the spectrometer and some spectra, 5) discuss this event with me.
