EDAY 2012: Special FREE event for Middle and High School Educators
Wednesday, 17 October
5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Lilac Ballroom, Rochester River Convention Center
This annual event focuses on effective and innovative approaches to science education, with an emphasis on hands-on, interactive classroom lessons. EDAY 2012 presents:
The Optics Suitcase Classroom Demonstration Kit!
Special Guest Speaker: Stephen D. Jacobs (University of Rochester, Senior Scientist, Professor of Optics and Chemical Engineering)
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!
