Laser applications in secondary education (LASE) project at Santa Teresa High School
Author(s): James D. Sagray

Paper Abstract

This manuscript will explain how to bring the LASE Project (Laser Applications in Secondary Eduction) to the high school physics classroom. The progress made after three years of implementation of the program at Santa Teresa High School will also be discussed. The goal of the project is to bring significant laser technology and optics to the secondary level with a special emphasis on student research and publication. The project has focused on requiring all students in Physics and Honors Physics classes (32/period) to experience laser labs in small groups working throughout the classroom. In addition to receiving this exposure, all physics students were encouraged to do original research projects and to compete for prizes against other California high school students at the Optical Science Fair held at San Jose State University. Students were further encouraged to publish their results in the LASE Log journal.
