Optical Engineering and the Science of Light

...”Optical looks at significant optical advances of the past (the Fresnel lens, the laser) as well as technologies in development now. Solid information for engineering-minded students.” ---Booklist, 03/14 “The text is in an easy to read format and the book includes a glossary, a list of books for reading more, online resources, and places to visit virtually. Studying light in the context of optical engineering helps students make connections so that light is not just an abstract concept, but a concept that has potential for work after school. This book could be used with upper elementary students and struggling readers in middle and high school.” -NSTA Recommends, 02/14
