Photonics Spectra

To educate students about science, optics and astronomy, the OSA Foundation has established a program to donate hundreds of telescopes to students in the Milwaukee area. Through a partnership with the Institute for the Transformation of Learning and a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, the foundation will donate nearly 500 “Galileoscopes” as well as books and DVDs about Galileo Galilei and astronomy to six local middle, junior high and high schools as part of its program called the Galileoscope Challenge.
