APS Produces Lasers Lessons and Kits

In conjunction with LaserFest, APS has produced a series of three hands-on, classroom-tested lessons on the laser, for high school students. The lessons cover the topics:

  • What's So Special About Laser Light?
  • How Does a Laser Work?
  • What Are Some Applications of Lasers?

If your institution is interested in holding a teacher workshop using these activities, APS can provide a limited number of lesson books and kits for workshop participants. Download the PDFs or email plisch@aps.org to request one set via mail. Photocopy student books as needed.
