First Meeting Professor Fritz’s Lab

I am completing a summer research experience for teachers through the Boston University Photonics department ( this summer, and thought it would be worthwhile to document the entire experience for anyone interested in learning more about science.

Today we had our first meeting with Professor Theodore Fritz’s lab at Boston University.  The lab I will be spending my summer with BUSAT (, working on the outreach materials and the culminating experience will be a balloon launch from Mount Greylock ( in Western Massachusetts.  The individuals we met with were Nathan and Kamen, who will be our point people throughout this summer process.

BUSAT already has some labs constructed, but they are in more scientific terms than students may understand.  My partner, Fjodor, and I will be revising these laboratories into teacher editions and student editions, and finding connections to other Massachusetts and National Science and Technology Frameworks.

We met in room 613 of the Photonics building, and were able to see the lab before our meeting.  It looked very much like a standard physics./mechanical engineering laboratory, it’s too bad I didn’t take a picture of it at the time.  The meeting lasted approximately an hour, and we were on our way towards our summer experience!
