Learning About Light: Education Outreach Projects Funded in 10 Countries Through First Round of SPIE Grants
Date:5/21/2013

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Through science fairs, workshops, kits for building optical instruments, teacher trainings, and funds for lab equipment, 25 organizations will continue their work to increase awareness about the relevance and importance of optics and photonics in daily life with the aid of SPIE Education Outreach Grants.

The organizations, located in 10 countries, are the first of two groups of recipients for grants to be awarded by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, in 2013.

The 25 organizations will share a total $67,000. Applications for the second round of grants are due 31 May, and awards will be announced later this year.

Recipients selected this round include universities and student groups that will promote optics and photonics to thousands of students attending science fairs such as the London Big Bang Fair in the UK and the Cambridge Science Festival in the USA as well as after-school science enrichment programs in Mexico, Poland, India, and elsewhere.

Some SPIE Education Outreach grants will go to support teacher trainings and the purchase of optical equipment for primary and secondary schools so that students can learn through hands-on experience.

The Addis Ababa Institute of Technology, for example, will purchase optical kits, instruments, and lab equipment to enable classroom demonstrations and experiments, and students in the SPIE Student Chapter at Koç University in Turkey will organize the eighth annual solar-powered model vehicle race.

The U.S. National Optical Astronomy Observatory and Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy plan to use their SPIE grant money to condu
