OSA Optics Discovery Kit: its development and use
Author(s): Donald C. O'Shea

Paper Abstract

This is a description of a project in elementary school optics education that originated through a professional society, the Optical Society of America (OSA). The purpose of this paper is to show how the project was started, the process by which the OSA Optics Discovery Kit was finally produced and distributed, and the current efforts to use the kits and to extend the idea to other educational levels. Through this discussion it is hoped that others may find both description of the kit and its generation of use in their efforts to engage the interest of youth in science
