Paper Abstract

Hands-On Optics: Making an Impact with Light (HOO) is a three-year informal science program designed to bring optics education to tens of thousands of underserved students nationwide. SPIE-The International Society for Optical Engineering and the Optical Society of America (OSA), along with Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) and the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), were awarded a $1.7 million grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2003 to implement this national science enrichment program intended for children in middle school (approximately 11 to 14 years old).
