An Educational laser light show visiting schools across the South

Visiting Your School

Schools and colleges can book the Light Express Roadshow for a morning, afternoon or after-school session of dazzling laser displays, interactive demonstration and hand-on experiments for your students, and it's free!

The Roadshow is aimed at A-Level and advanced GCSE students and links with the relevant optics topics within the National Curriculum for Physics and Science. The Light Express lecture covers principles such as; how a laser works, diffraction, refraction, reflection, total internal reflection, white light and the Electromagnetic spectrum, the interaction of light and matter, optical fibres and telecommunications.

In addition to this, the roadshow gives students an insight into studying physics at University and to careers in research.

We will adapt the show to fit in with your school timetable, but a typical show as below lasts about 45 minutes, with extra time for questions from interested students.

  • Introduction and laser show (5 mins)
  • 'The science of light' (35 mins)
  • Final laser show (5 mins)
  • Questions and discussion
