48th Annual Summer School Program

The University of Rochester Institute of Optics concluded its annual summer school program on June 27th. 120 attendees came from all over North America, including New Mexico, Minnesota, Canada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, and Texas, and included one participant from Japan (Sony) and Singapore (Qioptiq).


Included among the participants in Fundamentals of Optics was Jason McCaffery, a teacher from Monroe High School in the City of Rochester, who will be creating and teaching a twenty week Optics course for Monroe High students next year. Jason's tuition was covered by the University, and the cost for a substitute teacher to cover his classes while he attended the program was covered by RRPC.
