Light is fundamental to life and it is really a magical thing but because it is everywhere around us we just give it for granted.
The Light Lab educational programme inspires children and young people to appreciate light in a whole new way.
Light is also a wonderful medium to teach young minds about the importance of the STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Maths) subjects. These subjects are key to Photonics, the branch of technology concerned with the properties and transmission of light.
Photonics is essential to great number of sectors: from communications and health, to materials processing in production, to lighting and photovoltaics and to everyday products like Blue-ray players and mobile phones. Having a good understanding of Light’s full disruptive potential will be key to successful economies.
So at the Light Lab we aim to incite inquisitiveness and curiosity and encourage young people to study and pursue STEAM careers while empowering children and young people to become the Light champions of the future.
