The science and applications of light, lasers and optics is fascinating, and rapidly expanding - so it makes sense that lasers are showing up in classrooms more frequently. While students need little convincing that working with lasers is fun and exciting, teachers, administrators and parents may very well have safety concerns about putting real lasers in the hands of students.
This clear, and easy to follow curriculum guide for grades 7-12 takes a unique approach to teaching and learning about laser safety. Through four content rich lessons and a capstone project, Bringing STEM to Light leverages the inherently interdisciplinary nature of both safety and Lasers to delve into the science, technology, engineering and math concepts, behind safety rules.
Each of the lessons contains activities, demonstrations and supplemental content that invites students to critically engage the how and why of laser safety rather than memorize a set of rules. In addition, the guide contains a formative assessment rubric for gauging student progress from concrete to abstract understanding and clearly outlines how each lesson and activity scaffolds student learning.
