Laser Blox are laser pointers designed for teaching and learning. A sturdy no-roll design, hands-free on-off switch, and a line-generating lens make Laser Blox the most versatile classroom laser source available. Laser Blox are available in wavelengths spanning the visible spectrum: 405nm violet, 532nm green, and 635nm red to stick, stack or use separately.

*On backorder. New orders will ship by August 15th 2024.

  • Batteries Included

Designed with classroom trials and teacher input

Every feature designed with education in mind

  • Hands-free operation

    The on-off toggle switch frees up a hand while teaching and it's recessed to prevent accidental turn-on before it's pointed where you want it.

  • Secure on any surface

    Flat sides and strong magnets prevent rolling on the table and let you stick it to the white board so you can study rays with precision.

  • View the beam path

    Just insert the included lens to redirect the beam to the surface for easy viewing of ray trace geometry.

LASER Blox: Flexible, Visible, Durable Classroom Laser Light Sources

Not just a laser pointer

Stackable magnetic housing lets you form a ray box with any combination of wavelengths. Set them on the table or stick to the whiteboard so the whole classroom can see.

Bend light to your will

Narrow laser beams let you see first-hand how light interacts with surfaces - and measure it precisely. Confirm Snell's Law, learn how glasses work, and study optic design all with one classroom laser education system.

Lessons included

We've designed over a dozen lessons downloads for LaserBlox complete with printable student worksheets for hours of hands-on learning.

Laser Pointer FAQs

What are "Super Safe" laser pointers?

Our Class II (<1 mW) laser pointers (our "Super Safe" line) are preferred by schools and teachers, especially when kids will be handling them. These are considered safe by the FDA as long as they are not pointed directly in the retina for prolonged periods of time.

Are 5 mW lasers safe for kids?

Class IIIA laser pointers (<5 mW rating) should normally be handled by adults. They can damage a person's retina if pointed directly at the eye for many seconds to minutes, but our natural "look away" reflex usually prevents any damage by keeping exposure short.

Which color is the best?

Green is the most visible, red is the safest around kids, and violet lets you experiment with fluorescent materials. They each have their use, so consider getting one of each!

Which is best for learning about lasers?

We recommend our LaserBlox, which are specially designed for classroom demonstrations and experiments. They won't roll, can be stuck on a white board, and can be stacked magnetically for ray experiments.

Very Convenient

These are great lasers. I use them for all sorts of class demoes. The 3 wavelengths lets you explore diffraction. The magenetic bases are nice for the whitboard and the flat base allows them to sit on the table and not move around

Great lasers for physics classroom

I LOVE these lasers! I use them for all of my demos and labs. The fact that they are a push button and stays on means that they are hand free. The square nature of the case ensures they will not roll away and the magnets to connect them together make comparisons of wavelength super easy. I have been waiting to get more and am very excited to see their return.

Yes, I recommend

Very useful lasers, too big for a kid to take easily. They are easy to use and the magnetic housing makes it more versatile.

Thank you so much! Glad your kids couldn't walk off with them too easily :)

Yes, I recommend

The Laser Blox from laserclassroom is an essential piece of equipment for the physics classroom including the grade 10 optics (Ontario curriculum). I love the stackability and that I can use them with my old blackboard optics (I have replaced all the suction cups with magnets) setup instead of the incandescent lights. Easy to use and compact for interference experiments. The violet may not be bright enough to demonstrate interference from the back of your lab, but the red and green lasers certainly are. However, get a violet laser. It is great to show fluorescence and with the addition of fluorescein (8205602) in a aquarium or wave tank (166442) it really shows off refraction (and total internal reflection). A couple of very minor drawbacks - the magnets could be set up so that the lasers cannot point in different directions when stacked, and there is no battery polarity indicated on the unit. Remove the batteries for summer storage. Also draw a line on the supplied diffraction grating to show the orientation of the beam so that you install it correctly during demonstrations.

Thank you for the detailed review MK! We want to continue improving these products over time and will make some adjustments on the next manufacturing run.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order with a tax-exempt certificate?

We only automatically charge tax to shipping addresses in Ohio. If you're in Ohio, please email us your tax exempt certificate with purchasing email you'll use. We will keep it on file and mark your purchasing email as tax exempt. Then you can place your order normally without being charged taxes.
