This site provides a very clear and organized overview about optics, the science of light. There is a table of contents near the top of the site that links to all sorts of information, diagrams, and related about light, lenses, lasers, scientists and engineers, careers and more. The wealth of information here provides a nice starting point for student teachers to develop lesson plans that are focused on particular topics within this site such as white light and laser light or camera lenses. For some, it may provide a quick review and quick reference.

This site is clean, clear and concise in providing thoughtful overviews on many areas related to optics. I have used this site in my student teaching classes when covering colors, color mixing, and light in the arts. The diagrams are clear and show up well on a large screen. My point gets made in a fast and efficient way. The students often take note of the site and some use parts of the site in lessons that they develop for their elementary and middle school students.
