International Year of Light 2015

Light and light based technologies are driving the future of nearly every field you
can imagine: medicine, communications, defense, clean energy and
manufacturing to name a few. In honor of the power and possibility of light to
transform our world, UNESCO has named 2015 the International Year of Light.

LASER Classroom is proud to join UNESCO in celebrating the International Year
of Light! Our Light Blox Kit was selected as the effort’s official featured kit and is
being employed to share the science of light with kids all over the world.

Please join us in celebrating IYL2015 and promoting awareness and
appreciation for light and light based technologies.
