To further successfully leverage the Europe-wide distribution of the photonics explorer EYEST is currently identifying 10 new local associated partners (LAPs) from various regions of Europe. LAPs support EYEST in identifying potential sponsors for the secondary school intra-curricular educational kit, in distributing the kit to local schools, and in training the teachers on how to use the kit in an optimal way in the classroom.
Supported by the EU project LIGHT2015 EYEST therefore organized a first Photonics Explorer Trainers Workshop on 19/03/2015.
