STEM project Quantum SpinOff introduces modern physics to 6th years students in Science Mathematics. Today students from Sint Jozef Aarschot visited VUB B-PHOT research group to learn how photonics can be applied in innovative projects.
During the first visit, professor Heidi Ottevaere shared different real-life projects illustrating both fundamental and applied photonics research integrated in sustainable R&D. In addition they got introduced to a photonics workshop for hands-on experiments by Tine Depauw.
Now they started working on their own mini-projects linked to the topics of class courses in physics and quantum physics. An intensive workshop guided by one of our researchers, Andrea Ceglia.
The aim of Quantum SpinOff , coordinated by the Expertisecel Art of Teaching UC Leuven-Limburg, is to bridge modern science with high-tech entrepreneurship.
