Optical Engineering for Children--A Structured Approach
McCarthy, John; Moore, R. A.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v31 n6 p741-746 Dec 2006
The present paper focuses on the application of a structured template, maximum impact flow (MIF), in order to encourage young students in the area of optics and optical engineering. MIF introduces a template in terms of individual steps and linked functionality and is shown to fuse separate learning tools together into a cohesive unit. Prioritization and teaching structures are also discussed with the promotion of technology identified as a key factor.
