Exciting Laser Roadshow Brings Optics and Photonics Lessons to Even More Students in 2013

Bellingham, Washington, USA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Students in New York, California, and Illinois recently benefitted from science lessons in the form of an informative, entertaining laser show, after a community vote on altruism spending by members and constituents of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

Show producer Prismatic Magic presents more than a dozen educational shows featuring lasers in schools across the U.S. each year with support from SPIE, as part of the society’s educational outreach mission.

In 2013, Prismatic Magic received an additional $2,500 from SPIE to present its Laser Roadshow after an open vote by members on how to allocate a portion of the non-for-profit’s philanthropic funds.

As a result, the Laser Roadshow was experienced by 1,650 more students via shows at The Scholars' Academy in Rockaway Park, New York; Martin Luther King, Jr., Middle School in Oceanside, California; and Fred Rodgers Magnet Academy in Aurora, Illinois, in November and December.

The programs combine dynamic presentations, laser animations, and positively themed music in educational demonstrations of the science of lasers. The event includes a 20-minute introduction to laser science followed by a 40-minute laser show illustrating exciting developments in the fields of optics and photonics.

“I am well aware of the difficulties of trying to find an appropriate enrichment program that not only piques the interest of the student, but is also a genuine educational experience,” said Irene Dougherty, a former middle school teacher and parent of a sixth-grader at The Scholars’ Academy. “The show far exceeded any ex
