Lighten Up: Designing Lighting Systems by National Center for Technological Literacy
This curriculum introduces the field of optical engineering by guiding students to explore how optical engineers use their knowledge of science (particularly the behavior and properties of light), math, and their creativity to design and test technologies that solve problems related to light and optics. Students explore the field of optical engineering as they design a lighting system for the interior of a model ancient Egyptian tomb.
