We covered the chapter on Atomic Structure and performed labs on the Flame Test and Atomic Spectrum. Upon completion of the material, I presented each class with a power point on my RET experience at BU. The students were facinated. They did not know anything about lasers, let alone that a whole science field existed in this area. I even heard from students in other classes that my students loved the presentation and even told their peers about it. This is very exciting news to a teacher. I also encouraged the students to keep an open mind a bout a career in the STEM field. They were curious and excited and want me to get a field trip together to visit the photonics center!!!! We will see!
