Fifth Grade Laser Demonstration

laser show 1The students at Beacon Elementary took part in creating a laser light show. Jason Salt, a Beacon parent, worked with the fifth grade to demonstrate how he draws the designs. Then through the use of reflection, special lenses, and mixing the three primary colors of light, he creates the images and coordinates them with music. He explains that a three to four minute light show can take 30 to 40 hours to prepare. This parent’s science hobby is one of the key components of the fifth grade curriculum in the Light Energy Unit. When parents and staff work together to teach the students real world applications of science, the students are Ready For Tomorrow.
