We carried out educational outreach program in Jurong West Primary School on 13 October, 2016. With the aid of the optics suitcase, we gave a 40 minute experimental optics demonstration, such as rainbow peephole, polariscope and magic patch. The primary school students are very interested in our demonstration, and they had excellent interaction with our chapter members.
On 24 August, 2016, Prof. Eric Mazur, the President Elect of OSA, visited OSA NTU Student Chapter and gave a seminar on recent breakthroughs in nanophotonics. After the seminar, Prof. Mazur met with the NTU OSA student and faculty members during the buffet dinner. Also, Prof. Mazur awarded certificates to the previous OSA NTU Student Chapter officers for their work.
Prof. Gerd Keiser visited the OSA NTU Student Chapter on 28 July, 2016. He gave an impressive talk about “Optical Fibers for Biophotonics Applications” and visited the Nanophotonics lab.
