Pre-university Outreach Volunteer
The IEEE Photonics Society is encouraging its volunteers, chapters, educators, community partners, and affiliate universities or companies to participate by holding small events, hands-on activities or classroom presentations in their local communities. Activity examples: bring a child to work for the day; organize an event with an after-school program; and volunteer to give a presentation in an inclusive pre-university school classroom, i.e. elementary, middle school and high-school.
