Learning About Light: Education Outreach Projects Funded in 10 Countries Through First Round of SPIE Grants

ct teacher workshops with Galileoscopes in northern Chile. They will then distribute the high-quality, low-cost telescopes to students in 10 science academies in the region.

The Galileoscope was developed for educational outreach by astronomers, optical engineers, and science educators during the International Year of Astronomy 2009. It can be used as a hands-on activity to explore the optics of lenses as well as the night sky.

The Center for Integrated Access Networks at the University of Arizona received an award for activities that encourage under-represented minority students, especially Native Americans, to master optical science concepts and pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM).

As part of its mission, SPIE provides support for optics and photonics educational activities organized by not-for-profit organizations such as schools and colleges, optics centers, youth clubs, and science centers to increase optics and photonics awareness. The award process for the grants is competitive; applications are judged on their potential to impact students and increase optics awareness.

SPIE provided more than $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2012.

First-round recipients of SPIE Education Outreach Grant for 2013 are:

  •      Addis Ababa Institute of Technology
  •     Alberta Science Literary Association
  •     Aston University
  •     Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community High School
  •     Cambridge Science Festival
  •     Center for Integrated Access Networks, University of Arizona
  •     Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica
  •     Frankfort High School
  •     Fruitvale Independent School District
