All aboard the Light Express

What is the Light Express Roadshow? A travelling laser light show from the University of Southampton's School of Physics and Astronomy. The show is filled with spectacular demonstrations and accompanied by a fascinating talk about the laser technology behind the internet. The show visits schools around the South-East region and performs about 30x a year.

Take a look at some of Dr James Gates's photographs of the show. It takes us about 3 hours to get ready for a school laser show - which lasts about an hour.
The show is free for schools and is aimed at GCSE Science students - or AS/A Level Physics students.
