    Join us May 16 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to celebrate light and how optics and photonics make our lives better every day! Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium and Optics Valley are hosting the livestreamed celebration. 

    The International Day of Light is a global initiative to appreciate light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light allows different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrate how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.
