To stimulate and to facilitate the knowledge and innovation of optics and photonics, promote the mutual interests of its members, and to encourage free discussions of science and engineering among its members and the public.



HEOS has a number of projects ongoing or in conception such as designing and building Hands-On Optics educational kits, NASA Mirror Techoology Days conference, public innovation labs, and a solar and celestial telescope park.



We undertake a number of public educational outreach activities including scholarships for state and regional science and engieering fairs, apprenticeship and internship program, and development of educational materials. We are a community resource for optics and photonics.
