Photonics Explorer in 2500 schools across Europe
Today the 2500th Photonics Explorer has been handed over to a school in Finland. The concept of Photonics Explorer is a 'lab-in-a-box' that enables students of the 2nd and 3rd grade to do photonics experiments themselves at school with lasers, LEDs, lenses, optical fibers, and other high-tech components. Photonics Explorer is an educational kit , developed by the photonics research team B-PHOT at VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), for students of secondary schools to experiment with the different properties of light and photons.
