Use of the laser in the high school classroom: the LASE project
Author(s): Malcolm G. Cornwall; Gareth T. Williams

Paper Abstract

Laser Applications in Science Education (LASE) is an original, laser-based, hands-on and open- ended approach to the teaching of the principles and applications of modem optics at high school (14-19) level. LASE courses, supported by the National Science Foundation and the British Institute of Physics, have been presented in varying forms to numerous high school teachers. The LASE project includes a handbook for teachers, a newsletter and the continuing field testing development of courses and materials.
