Laser Light Show

As soon as the laser came up, Bobo shouted, "COOL!"

We learned the science behind a laser light show. The laser is a concentrated beam of light. When you move it really fast, faster than the eye can see, you can create shapes.

The same science is behind televisions, by moving the light very fast, the eye detects motion.

If you use lots of lasers at once, you can make letters and words.

We enjoyed a laser light show with music and characters we recognized.

Bobo loved when the lasers bounced off mirrors and reflected all over the room.

Towards the end, he stood on my lap and tried to reach the lasers. After the show when the Laser People asked for questions he said, "Can the lasers hurt you?" The Laser Man said that if they shine directly in your eye, they can hurt your eye. Even the tweens were impressed with this show as were the parents. I re-iterate, "So cool!"

  2. Laser shows are so cool. It's always fun to find science in amazing things we see. Though, I have to admit, I hadn't thought of the connection between lasers and TV.
