This is the first time Technical Career Institutes (TCI) has applied for an NSF grant.

Building a brand new, fullyfunctional lab was a monumental task both scientifically and

administratively for TCI. For many years, we have only had to modify, expand or

duplicate existing labs.

We started by transforming a classroom into a laboratory. We purchased equipment for

the optical communications lab, Pasco Complete Optical System, Optel (Optical

Communications Kit), and the College provided us with other measurement

instrumentation. TCI also provides us with the ability to interface with the outside world

and gave us INTERNET and E Mail.

We acquired a complete optical system that would give us exposure to the various topics

of geometrical optics and would give students hands-on experience. The OPTEL

experiment set made by Pasco includes a complete set of experiments concerning basic

communications in fiber optics. However, we are now reaching a point where we have
