Camping Trip: How Can We Measure the Wavelength of Light Emitted From Stars?

This activity is a chance for students to apply the diffraction grating equation m*Λ/d = Θ to solve a real life problem: find the wavelength of given source of light. It is also useful for them to apply trigonometry to real life scenarios.
