Call for Human Chain of International Year of Light

[Mostafa Mohammad Rezaee, M.Sc. of Physics, Researcher]

We invite all of the school principals from all over the world to participate in our announcement for providing a picture of human chain to celebrate International Year of Light. In order to make this plan work, students must rally in the yard of school to form the shape of “IYL 2015”. A picture of this formed shape must be captured by camera simultaneously. Obviously this photo must be taken from first floor or the roof of the school building.

Some sample of human chains (note #1: the figures of heart and arrow are just as samples and should not be made).

Why International year of light? Extensive developments of optics and photonics have changed the human life. Growing revolution of medical imaging, causing to increases the accuracy in treatment and a huge descend in the financial costs of casualties. The internet, a symbol of communication via satellite performance and fiber optic, has converted the past mysterious world to the small village and made the human relationships more beautiful.

The increasing use of solar energy as the best and cleanest energy, promises happy future for our beautiful planet. These developments have convinced the erudite and scholarly scientists to focus and invest on swifter progress of optics can plummet the living costs of mankind life. Hence On 20 December 2013, the UN General Assembly 68th Session proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). We are hoping it would be able to open the doors for better life of human being.

Target: the main purpose of this competition and totally the celebration of International Year of Light, is to introduce the importance of light and light-based technologies to students. Thus, as the first pattern, the following figure is suggested as a symbol of International Year of Light and stands for “International Year of Light 2015”.

Guidance: students should be arranged according to the plan below

  • According to the pattern, there is a vacancy of two students between two letters or numbers.
  • Required number of students to run the big plan is 177 in total. I=21, Y=25, L=18, 2=29, 0=36, 1=19, 5= 29.
  • Required number of students to run the small plan is 116 in total. I=13, Y=17, L=12, 2=19, 0=24, 1=12, 5= 19.
