Beautiful Glass

      The girls from Dallas and Fort Worth learned a brief history of JJ Thompson, Robert Milliken, and Ernst Rutherford who all lead the way in our development in the structure of the atom. We now know that atoms have different energy configurations. Each configuration is associated with the energy required to hold it there. The girls observed how different elements create unique colors when the electrons in them are excited to higher energy levels. By viewing different elements in gas tubes with a spectroscope, they were able to draw out and identify different elements by their " bar code of energy emissions."
