In collaboration with the non-profit EYEST, B-PHOT offers a wide range of inspiring activities based on the innovative character of photonics, the technology of light. We have special photonics activities for young minds, students, schools, science teachers and fab labs, as well as general activities for anybody interested in this key-enabling technology. Among other initiatives, we offer science shows, lab visits, a photonics congress for secondary schools, photonics educational kits, photonics toolkits for fab labs and much more.
Please register your interest if you want to be kept informed about our activities at the very bottom of this page.
