Laser Fun Day

    Date: 
    Saturday, April 20, 2019 - 10:00am - 3:00pm
    Description: 

    The University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences will hold its ninth annual Laser Fun Day as SOCk, the official undergraduate and graduate student optics organization, brings the science of optics alive for all ages. The educational extravaganza takes place on Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Meinel Building, 1630 E. University Blvd. on the UA campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

    This year Laser Fun Day will be hosting numerous optical science demonstrations from cow eye dissections, IR cameras, to interactive demos and our overwhelmingly popular laser maze. Featured topics are colors, lasers, and high tech applications of optics.

    This Laser Fun Day is 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. Additionally, Laser Fun Day could not happen without the countless hours of student volunteers.

    RSVP to the event on Facebook.
