Science Educators' Day
Science Educators’ Day (EDAY): This FREE annual event focuses on effective and innovative approaches to science education, with an emphasis on hands-on, interactive classroom activities.
2012 Classroom Demonstration: The Optics Suitcase
In 1999, Dr. Jacobs and the Rochester OSA Local Section developed the Optics Suitcase---a terrific demonstration kit that includes experiments that teach about optics in a fun, hands-on atmosphere. Since its introduction, the Suitcase Program has benefited thousands of students around the world through lessons in polarization, diffraction, selective reflection and "theme packets" which contain the individual experiments for students to take home to share with their friends and family. During this session, Dr. Jacobs will showcase the kit’s lessons and demonstrations. This is a great opportunity to see these very popular and successful learning modules in action!
