This quarter SPIE welcomed 13 new student chapters to our growing chapter community. The Univ. of Exeter chapter started off with a bang organizing an outreach demonstrations fair. We congratulate them on their early acheivement!
"To introduce our new chapter at Exeter, we organized an outreach demonstrations fair. Our optical displays ranged from rending objects invisible, to the dazzling world of natural photonics, the control of colour using optical feedback, and laser uses in the real world - even some of our own academics came to test our knowledge!
We saw more than 60 undergraduates walk away with a smile (plus some homemade cake) and twenty-one signed up to our mailing list. We hope that they will get involved with our upcoming activities later this year."
