POWER team members attended Optifab, an event in Rochester, NY hosted by The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), where they were able to share their findings and network with the local optics manufacturing community and students who are applying for jobs in the field. They expanded their sample further and met new people who are interested in interview with them so they can learn more about the skills they value and use on the job.
Students involved with POWER also had the chance to talk about the project while practicing networking. Members spoke with Optifab organizers to brainstorm other ways of charging their findings with the community.
SPIE is an international organization that connects people across disciplines to advance technologies, share information across disciplines, and support further education and career preparation relating to the science and application of light.
