On the 28th June 2016 Dr Alex Clark and Dr Robert Woodward from the OSA London Local Section joined forces with Mr Henry Hammond, Director of Physics at Alexandra Park School, at the Capital Physics Annual Conference to deliver a Workshop on Optics and Photonics.
The aim of this was to train teachers in the use of optics and photonics kits in the classroom, including the OSA Explore Optics Kits. There were many demonstrations from paraxial ray cloaking to Pepper’s Ghost, building a spectrometer and measuring the wavelength of a laser. At the end of the workshop the teachers were all enthusiastic to try out the kits with each of them taking one back to their school.
If other teachers want to get involved then please join the local section using the “Join!” tab above.
