Young Women’s College Prep Visits LLE

Twenty students from the Young Women’s College Prep Charter School of Rochester (YWCP) visited LLE for the first time. LLE’s Diversity Manager, Terry Kessler, invited this group to participate in demonstrations of optics, holography, and lasers. LLE graduate students provided tours of both the OMEGA 60 and OMEGA EP Laser Systems. These YWCP high school students are currently taking an optics course that was facilitated by the Optical System Technology department at the local Monroe Community College. Shown is the group with two of their instructors and four LLE graduate students. A presentation by a member of the YWCP Board of Trustees is shown in the lower left along with a visit to OMEGA EP in the lower right.
