See the ALPhA Laboratory Immersions wiki page for more information about these and past experiments.
The 2021 Immersion program is partially supported by NSF grant DUE-1940925.
Registration for the 2021 Immersions is scheduled to begin by January 27, 2021.
The Jonathan F. Reichert Foundation has established a grant program to help purchase apparatus used in Laboratory Immersions. Limitations and exclusions apply, but generally speaking the foundation may support up to 40% of the cost of the required equipment. Preference will be given to ALPhA members in good standing. See the Reichert Foundation website for more information.
Jasper Display Corp. is offering a $2000 incentive to participants in Immersion experiments which use Spatial Light Modulators (see Reed College and University of the South Immersion sites). Participants are also eligible to apply for a $2000 Reichert Foundation grant to purchase the Jasper SLM Education Kit. With the incentive program and a successful grant application, the SLM Education Kit net cost is only $1000.
