EYEST joins PHABLABS 4.0 to promote STEM
24.02.2017 - PHABLABS 4.0 aims to make photonics, the science and technology of light, more accessible to youngsters from as early as ten years old up to young professionals, through the dynamic eco-system of European FabLabs. Together with 27 partners, tens of attractive and tailored Workshops and Challenging Projects will be developed to enable youngsters to make their creative concepts real. During the startup phase, up to 3000 youngsters will have the chance to experiment with the PHABLAB 40 modules. Within the 3 first years of the project, PHABLABS 4.0 is expected to inspire 18 000 youngsters for photonics, for STEM education and for exciting engineering jobs of the future.
The existing network of about 500 FabLabs offers the ideal co-creative platform where young minds and entrepreneurs can effectively experiment with science, with the newest technology and with components such as laser equipment, LED, lenses and optical fiber up to programmable electronic chips. Integrating photonics and its many applications in FabLabs, allows young people to put seemingly unattainable ideas into practice in a way that is fun and inspiring. PHABLABS 4.0. can spark ideas, pave the road to innovative concepts and might subsequently be a starting point for a bright future as a technician, engineer or researcher.Read more
Hamamatsu Photonics - Inspiring the next generation of scientists
Hamamatsu recently became a silver sponsor of the Photonics Explorer. Together with the Local Associated Partners several trainings to teachers were organised in the UK, Belgium, Sweden and the US.
Hamamatsu News is reporting about a training session in the UK.
Thank you Hamamatsu for supporting teachers!
With the support of Hamamatsu Belgium, 15 secondary school teachers in Belgium now have the Photonics Explorer kits.
Hamamatsu is sponsoring worldwide the photonics explorer kits. With the 79 sponsored kits, Hamamatsu is an important Silver sponsor of the Photonics Explorer Programme.
Happy Teacher's Day!
