A Little About us:
Thank you to Ed, Hui Min, Roopa and Isela for going over to Great Expectations Academy this morning (10/14/2014) to show some optics demos! They left the UA early this morning to be in Sahuarita, AZ for the 8 am physics/science class. They discussed the different fields of study that are involved in optics, did a quick overview of reflection and refraction from what the students had already learned, and did a crash course on human vision and 3D imaging. The students were excited to see the 3D images and had fun posing for their own 3D Anaglyph Picture they will later use in the school year book!
We hope to have more people join us for our next outreach event.
Come join WiO for some food and conversation at the WiO potluck brunch. (flier attached)

WiO gave a workshop at Expanding Your Horizons on November5, 2011 and once again we did very well! This is a great way to help show young high school girls in the Tucson community the joys that math and science can bring.
