Electro-Optics Curriculum Development at Maui Community College

Akamai teams up faculty, graduate students, and curriculum consultants to design new course material and laboratory activities.

Instrumentation Course (ETRO 102, Mark Hoffman & John Pye):

Introduces fundamental principles and applications of optics, electronics, engineering, and computer software integral to the operation of instrumentation. Includes 3 visiting scientist/engineer teaching teams who are developing new instructional units as part of the new Akamai Teaching and Curriculum Collaborative (TeCC):

    • Digital Image Files
      • Katie Morzinski (lead, UCSC/CfAO astronomy graduate student)
      • Ian Crossfield (UCLA astronomy graduate student)
      • Christopher Crockett (UCLA astronomy graduate student)
    • Spectrometer Design
      • Steve Rodney (lead, UH IfA graduate student)
      • Lisa Chien (UH IfA graduate student)
      • Bernhard Laurich (Hawaii Community College faculty member)
      • Nicholas McConnell (UC Berkeley astronomy graduate student)
    • Charge-coupled Devices (CCD’s)
      • Isar Mostafanezhad (lead, UH electrical engineering graduate student)
      • Ciril Rozic (UH electrical engineering graduate student)
      • Nick Moskovitz (UH IfA graduate student)

Akamai Internship Short Course (ETRO 293V):

Prepares Akamai interns for a successful internship experience, including optics, telescope design, communication skills, and teamwork. Includes visiting scientist engineer teaching teams, led by Ryan Montgomery (UCSC), Scott Seagroves (CfAO/UCSC), and Jess Johnson (UCSC):

    • Adaptive Optics: aberrations, wavefront detection, image correction, and hands-on MCC’s Adaptive Optics workbench (which itself was constructed by a past Akamai intern!)
      • David Harrington (lead, UH IfA graduate student)
      • Sarah Sonnett (UH IfA graduate student)
      • Mark Pitts (UH IfA graduate student)
    • Camera Obscura (same team as above)
    • Optics of Lenses (same team as above)
    • Color, Light and Spectra (same team as above)
