Magic Shows for Light Explorers
Learning about photonics
in a magical way
Light, its nature and its properties are as amazing as they are useful. In our daily life, the things we do, the objects we use, how we generate and harness energy, the way we communicate and how we take care of our health, are increasingly intertwined with light and its properties. At the Institute of Photonic Sciences we investigate what light is and how to use it.
In this session we intend to introduce the field of photonics to the general public through our main programs, “Light for Health”, “Light for Energy” and “Light for Information”, with an innovative format that will combine informative and educational explanations with audiovisuals and… MAGIC!
