Photonics Explorer launch Event
On December 12th, the Photonics Team of the VUB launched its "Photonics Explorer" at TE Connectivity in Kessel-Lo.
The Photonics Explorer is an educational kit that makes it possible for secondary school students to experiment in class with high-tech instruments like lasers and optic fibres.
The VUB team developed the kit with financial support from the EU, and the equipment will be distributed all over Europe once teachers have been trained.
In Flanders, technology company TE Connectivity has already provided 100 schools with the kits, and the first 30 teachers received training this week.
