November Shout-Out: Welcome Members of the National Science Teaching Association (nsta.org)

Every phone call, your conversation is mixed in with 32,255 others, transmitted over an optical fiber the size of your hair.  It is the world's largest party line, so can I listen in on your conversation?  Can I steal your PIN or view your text messages?       Can I Hear You Now?  (click for answers to the questions above)

In this tutorial, we will discover how optical fibers the size of a human hair are manufactured; how they are installed, spliced and tested; and how they impact your daily life for phone calls, text messages, tweets and web browsing.  By Telephone Company Senior Engineer/Director of Research & Development - derived from years of presentations, contains information voted most interesting by students, teachers and adults.

In each lesson you will perform experiments to illustrate key points, followed by a short quiz (not to worry, this is an "open web test").  The Experiments are all great fun and a highlight of each Lesson.  You will see a picture of your own voice, compare your hair to an optical fiber, simulate the manufacture of optical fibers by creating a long, thin string of cheese, create models and much more!  We even issue a challenge to teachers and professors.
