In August 2018, we held our 1st full day Optics & Spectroscopy camp for Girls, Inc. Eureka! program. It was a success thanks to our TAs Katy Kushnir and Maryam Shalmani, Ron Grimm (WPI Chemistry) and Kunta Wu (WPI Physics) who led tours of labs at Gateway campus, and generous support of WPI Women’s Impact Network and NSF (through NSF CAREER Award).
In July 2018, Lyubov, Alexis Buzzell and Megan Varney took part in Start Up Academy at Mount Wachusett Community College and taught newly enrolled community college students about optical spectroscopy
