OSA-SPIE Student Chapter

The student chapter of OSA-SPIE represents the two international optical companies OSA (The Optical Society) and SPIE (the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers). Our mandate is to promote science, and in particular optics, at different levels. It is for this reason that educational workshops to popularize science are organized directly in schools for young children in order to develop their curiosity.

We also participate in each edition of the Eureka Science Festival in order to offer outreach activities in a more family atmosphere.

We also participate in the life of Polytechnique in various ways. For example, we finance projects related to optics through OSA and SPIE grants. We are also trying to encourage collaboration between laboratories by organizing the Innovation Day, which is a conference whose presentations are given by students from the Polytechnic. We also invited internationally renowned researchers to Polytechnique to present their research to interested students.
