In this project, we designed a complete course that is aimed at introducing optics to high school students, to give them knowledge about optics. The students we worked with come from Girl’s Inc., and the course we designed for them is for summer school. This will be a good preview if they are going to study optics in high school; or serves as a formal introductory course if they will not have optics class after this. The experiments are the main part of this course and the topic introductions are designed according to them. We have chosen several simple but interesting experiments that could be conducted with materials that can be easily obtained. All of them relate to make a device that is used for observation, and each of them has a practical application.
