The University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences will hold its seventh annual Laser Fun Day as SOCk, its undergraduate and graduate student organization, brings the science of optics alive for area elementary-and middle-school children. The educational extravaganza takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
The overwhelmingly popular Laser Maze returns yet again to delight participants. Exhibits include a six-foot-long kaleidoscope, laser radios, solar telescopes and an infrared camera, all of which illustrate different applications and properties of light. Kids will have the chance to take part in a mystery hunt and receive a prize at the end.
This Laser Fun Day was made possible through grants from the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) and The Optical Society (OSA), as well as a generous donation from BAE Systems.
