Experiencing the Magic World of Optics

Author: Jinhui Chen

The Nanjing University Student Chapter of OSA (NJU-OSA) conducted youth education activities at the Baochuan Primary School.

According to our plan, we first introduced optical knowledge to the pupils in Class Two, Grade Four and then demonstrated optics related experiments. Wei Ji was charge of teaching the background knowledge and received good response from the pupils. The pupils were active to answer the questions and we gave gifts to those who answered correctly.

After that, we showed the interesting optical experiments. The disappearance of the coin, beaker, pencils was displayed first in groups. The pupils were attracted by the magic phenomena. Following this were the experiments on light reflection, refraction, polarization plates, etc. Besides demonstrating experiments, we also made good exchange with the pupils about the basic physics behind those experiments. We tried to inspire them to think.

At the end of the class, we awarded those who did well in class and encouraged them to work hard.

Through this volunteer work, we learned that the teaching process was very successful and we hope that the pupils will get more interested in science after our activity. We will carry out more similar volunteer work in the future.

Jinhui Chen, Tingting Zhang, Wei Ji, Shijun Ge, Bicai Zheng participated in this activity as the representatives of Nanjing University Student Chapter of OSA.
