The 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
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.
