Laser Blox™ have an on- off switch and sit on the table just like more expensive bench top lasers for hands free operation at a fraction of the cost. No more frustration with laser pointers rolling around and fussing with rubber bands to make red laser pointers and green laser pointers stay on. Laser Blox turn on and stay on with a push button switch.
If you currently use laser pointers in the classroom to teach about light, lasers and optics, consider an upgrade! Laser Blox™ are sturdy, durable and made for hands on experiments and labs around light, lasers and optics!
Or use three stacked to create a ray box for others.
Use each unit separately for some projects…
And makes the beam visible on the viewing surface – no more fog or chalk.
Durable cylindrical lens snaps in and out easily!
Stick and stack any combination with super strong magnets.
On/off button leaves hands free for measuring, calculating or manipulating lenses.
View the laser beam with Laser Blox™
End the frustration and mess of using chalk dust or fog to see the laser beam – Laser Blox™ come with a snap in, snap out lens that turns the point source into a visible beam that students can easily view as the laser passes through lenses or bounces off mirrors.
Create a Ray Box out of Laser Blox™
Add value and flexibility to your Laser Blox™ by magnetically snapping together 2 or more Laser Blox™ of any wavelength to create your own Ray Box. In seconds, three individual lasers become a green Ray Box or a red laser Ray Box making geometric optics demonstrations, labs and experiments fast and easy.
Whether you’re new to lasers in the classroom or a seasoned and certified laser geek, LASER Blox™ is sure to make both your teaching and your student’s learning easier and more fun. For less than half the price of many educational lasers, you get all of the functionality and twice the flexibility and versatility.

PS4.B Electromagnetic Radiation
when light shines on an object, it is reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through the object, depending on the object’s material and the frequency (color) of the light (MS-PS4-2)
The path that light travels can be traced as straight lines, except at surfaces between different transparent materials (e.g. air and water, air and glass) where the light path bends (MS-PS4-2)
A wave model of light is useful for explaining brightness, color and the frequency-dependent bending of light at a surface between media (MS-PS4-2)
Electromagnetic radiation (e.g. radio, microwaves, visible light) can be modeled as a wave of changing electric and magnetic fields or as particles called photons. The wave model is useful for explaining many features of electromagnetic radiation, and the particle model explains other features. (HS-PS4-3)
When light or longer wavelength electromagnetic radiation is absorbed in matter, it is generally converted into thermal energy (heat). Shorter wavelength electromagnetic radiation (ultraviolet, X-rays, gamma rays) can ionize atoms and cause damage to living cells (HS-PS4-4)
Photoelectric materials emit electron when they absorb light of a high enough frequency (HS-PS4-5)
