In the frame of the European Union funded Comenius project "Hands-on Science", a network of very active high schools was created, aiming to attract students towards science study by offering them the possibility to learn and to express themselves through experiments. On the other side, our Institute coordinates the project "Science Education and Training in a Knowledge-Based Society - SET 2010", project supported by the Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, which targets the same audience by different means. The paper addresses some of the results of these two projects as they are linked with photonics teaching in high schools through extra curricular activities such as science clubs, science fairs, and national contests for high school students. The project results were introduced to the public at various conferences: ETOP Conference (France), NATO Advanced Workshop (Hungary), Hands-on Science Conference (Greece), Euroscience Forum (Germany), Communicating European Research (Belgium).
