Expect Academic Success in STEM (EASIS) Summer Camp for Native American Students

EASISThe Expect Academic Success in STEM (EASIS) is an outreach program in partnership with Winslow Unified School District (WUSD). It leverages off existing activities, and teacher training programs, with the purpose of introducing and sustaining optics and photonics concepts to middle and high school Native American students.

This year’s EASIS summer camp is
June 9-13

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help with the programming. Email Amee Hennig if you are interested in being a part (in any way) of the summer camp.

The intended outcome of EASIS is to improve classroom STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum and encourage Native American students to excel in Science and Math, ultimately motivating them to pursue engineering professions. The optics summer camp offers hours of optics demonstrations and presentations by Optical Sciences graduate students and faculty, guided tours of optics and STEM labs, as well as a college preparation presentation.

 Example Activities:

  • Measure the Power Output of the Sun
  • JELL-O Lenses
  • Steward Observatory Mirror Lab Tour
  • Fundamentals of Human Vision & Cow-eye Dissection
  • And much, much more!
