Specific Support Action: "Fascination of Light"

The interactive travelling exhibition “Fascination of Light” which has been developed and displayed very successfully in Germany during the past two years will be put on a European level. As part of the European campaign the exhibition will travel through several European cities with the support of the European Commission and organised by institutions collaborating within the consortium LASERLAB EUROPE with additional support from the NEMO Network of Excellence on Micro-Optics. The exhibition is based on a multidisciplinary approach where photonics and their pervasiveness in every-day life can be actively experienced through interactive, hands-on exhibition pieces, illustrative material and multimedia stations, functional models, visual aids, posters and simple experiments, which may provide inspirations for teaching.
