We all know how short South Africa is of well trained technical people to work in our more advanced industries, but this is not unique in the world. To this end Educators in other parts of the world have been ensuring that typically male dominated sectors like Science in general, and Spectroscopy specifically is brought to the attention of girls at an early age, to try and stimulate more women to join this segment of science.
Ocean Optics have joined in helping this move with a comprehensive range of Educational Resources, including advanced but easy to use Spectroscopy Instruments.
New media like animated videos are also being released, like this one: Ever wonder what goes on inside a Spectrometer?
Contact us if you are interested in school or tertiary level Educational Tools and Toys for Spectroscopy education.
In case you are wondering, most of our colleagues are not boys!
