Quabbin Regional High School
During the summer of BU 2012 I was fortunate enough to participate in an NSF-funded program at Boston University Photonics Center that provides middle and high school teachers an opportunity to participate in research. Teachers were assigned in teams of two to a lab within the Photonics Center. I was teamed with Michelle McMillan from Sanborn Middle School in NH. We worked in Dr. Bifano's lab on adaptive optics.
Our task this summer was to build a demonstration adaptive optics system. This system will be used by Dr. Bifano in his classes next year. We learned a lot about adaptive optics ourselves in the process. Check out the links on the left to find out about my experience and how it will affect my teaching.
