WHAT WE OFFER

ICFO offers a wide range of activities to engage students at all levels to the wonders of photonics.

Often passions start at childhood

The concept of Scientific Discovery can be nurtured in children starting at a young age, encouraging them to ask questions and develop a mindset based on the scientific discovery and process. “Why is the Sky Blue? What is a rainbow? How does the Internet work?” All of these seemingly simple questions pave the way for insightful conversations that introduce some basic concepts behind the science of light.

At ICFOseum, students between 8 and 12 years-of age find stimulating activities that illustrate the principles of photonics and its role in our everyday life.
