Kids learn photonics at CNBP Adelaide

Roman Kostecki13 July 2015:

Primary school children were given introductory talks about photonics and light by CNBP scientist Roman Kostecki at CNBP’s University of Adelaide node last week (Thu 9th July).

The talks were a part of a STEMSEL Club holiday workshop where the children were asked to design and make three photonics related devices, demonstrating interactions with light   (1) how light is guided in optical fibres, (2) the light spectrum and colour, and (3) UV light and fluorescence.

STEMSEL stands for Science Technology Engineering Maths Social Enterprise Learning. The STEMSEL clubs are an arm of the STEMSEL Foundation which is a not for profit organisation that aims to teach every child how to use technology and electronics.
