Schools & teachers

Are you a teacher who would like to organise photonics activities for your class? Or are you interested in the Photonics Explorer kit or our other photonics toolkits?

School visits

Come and enjoy a class visit to the Brussels Photonics research group's labs. You can combine the tour with some fascinating workshops.

Photonics Explorer

The Photonics Explorer is an intra-curricular Photonics kit designed for secondary school students across Europe. Each kit contains a set of generic, durable and versatile components for a class of 25-30 students to carry out optical experiments.
