Rani and Maryam wonder if scientists are liars.  After all, scientists say they know what’s inside the Sun, even though no one has ever gotten close to the Sun!  Ms. Lisa hopes a homemade spectroscope will clear up the confusion.  Follow the step-by-step instructions to build a spectroscope and learn how scientists can “read” light spectra to look inside the Sun.

Astronomer’s Toolbox is a hands-on introduction to astronomy and engineering that mixes charming characters, unique storylines, and step-by-step instructions.  Our novel approach introduces the wonderful universe beyond our Earth and shows how, with a little creativity, we can design ingenious tools from household items.  Follow the adventures of Rani and Maryam, two curious kids who apprentice themselves to Ms. Lisa and uncover the wonders of space.  As they design tools like a telescope and a latitude locator, each book provides clear instructions for young astronomers to follow along at home and create their own astronomer’s toolbox.
