    The first inaugural Optics and Photonics Winter School and Workshop, which took place Jan. 5-9, 2016, was a resounding success. The school brought together 30 or so undergraduate students from top liberal arts colleges, technical colleges and universities for an overview of foundational topics in optics and photonics and their relation to current research. The following workshop provided a forum for the students, as well as visiting and OSC faculty, to share results, approaches and methodologies that are unique to the undergraduate setting. 

    From that participating group, nine students have applied to the College of Optical Sciences, and visiting faculty have expressed great interest in continued participation. Plans are currently underway to repeat the Winter School and Workshop in Jan., 2017.

    Videos of the school and workshop are now available on the official website.
