Lesson Plan


This activity is an interactive “out-of-the-seat” demo that allows the students to become involved in learning about fibre optic cables by imitating the way that one basically functions. While enjoying the physicality of the demo the students will pick up basic details of light, reflection, optical properties, and applications to technology. Additionally, the activity will go into details of how fibre optics are used in astronomy technology and how they are used to improve our understanding of the universe. An emphasis should be placed on asking direct questions to the students about how these concepts can influence technology, astronomy, and our world to reinforce the concepts that they are learning about.
