Student volunteers from the University of Rochester Institute of Optics SPIE Student Chapter helped New York Photonics Executive Director, Tom Battley assemble and install 20 beautiful photo banners at the Greater Rochester International Airport on Friday, October 9.
The banners are there to welcome visitors and exhibitors to Rochester during SPIE Optifab, held in Rochester biannually, and to inform travelers about photonics.
They highlight the many ways that light impacts our lives, and were attracting curious passers by even as they were being assembled. Afterwards the team went out to lunch!
The banners will be installed at the airport through the end of October.
As the old adage goes: Many hands make light work!
