Help me give my students Safe Spectrum Tubes for our investigation into how astronomers study the spectra of light distance objects to learn about the universe outside of our solar system when we cannot travel to these places.

My students are on-level and AP Physics 2 students. They have a range of academic abilities some very high achieving students as well as students with special needs, learning disabilities, and physical disabilities.
My students have a keen interest in science and engineering and are curious about how things work.
They engage in many hands-on, inquiry-based labs that enable them to identify relationships to develop models about how systems behave.
These spectrum tubes are an essential component of our inquiry investigation into how astronomers know what the universe beyond our planet looks like if the furthest mankind has touch down is Mars.
In their learning pods, students will work in socially distance lab groups to analyze the light from each of these different spectrum tubes to understand how spectral analysis reveals the mysteries of the universe.
Our district is looking to provide support for in person learning hubs once shelter in place restrictions have been lifted. If we cannot get the learning hubs on campus, I hope that we can transfer the equipment between lab groups over the course of a two week time period when we do this investigation in early spring.
