Prof. Malis organized and conducted outreach activities at Imagination Station, a local children’s museum in West Lafayette, IN. The activities introduced children age 4-12 to hands-on optics experiments involving light reflection, refraction, color formation, optical illusions and other physical phenomena. The children used visible and “invisible” ultraviolet and infrared light. Specifically, the children were able to view the world through and take pictures with two commercial (FLIR) infrared cameras.
Prof. Malis also developed and performed optics-related activities for "Physics Inside Out", a summer camp for middle-school students from economically disadvantages area around Lafayette, IN.
