Animation and Mirages @ Highland Garden Elementary

On March 10th froIMG_0886m 1pm-3pm, the CIAN team from Tuskegee University conducted an outreach event at Highland Garden Elementary School, in Montgomery AL. About fifty-five 4th and 5th grade students were provided with overview of optics, more specifically the application of mirrors. Also in attendance were seven teachers and two administrators who learned alongside the students in some cases. The students were divided into five groups of eleven students each. All student participants did hands-on work using the Animation Praxinoscope and Mirage kits from the CIAN backpack and were supervIMG_0890ised by CIAN students. Participants gained an increased interest and awareness in optics and some other STEM areas. They also learned to explain
seemingly difficult everyday optical phenomena using scientific concepts.
