I have been in the photonics (lasers & optics) business for some time, both as a Laser & Optics Technician and an IHCC Laser & Optics Technology Instructor. My NSF Grant “Developing Secondary School Photonics Education” (DPE) has a “no cost” proposition to your high/middle school, your students and you. For the 2021 - 2022 school year, I will travel to any Iowa High School to present to your high school class the science of light & lasers with demonstrations and career opportunities. Plus, as the teacher, you will receive a small token of my appreciation. All you need to do is let me know the date, the time of and how many class periods. First come is first served; of course, I will do my best to accommodate all.
