Saturday Open Lab
Host a visit in your lab to recruit students for the CfAO internship program!
The goal of "Saturday Open Lab" is to expose undergraduates from underrepresented groups to research at CfAO sites, and to generate interest in our internship program. Additionally, the Saturday Open Lab will be used to implement inquiry-based teaching* strategies and instructional material developed at CfAO's Professional Development Workshop. We envision Saturday Open Labs to be developed and taught by a team of individuals from a CfAO site, combining the efforts of PI's, postdocs, graduate students, and staff scientists. CfAO EHR will assist with recruiting 10-15 students from minority and women serving institutions in your area to attend the event. Students who attend a Saturday Open Lab will learn basic optics (through an inquiry experience) and find out about your research through a brief presentation and tour of your facility.
One Possible Schedule:
Why you Should Host a Saturday Open Lab:
* Inquiry-based teaching is an important tool for teaching science that is
part of the National Science Standards and is widely viewed as a teaching strategy
that should be used more, at all levels.
