School visits

Are you looking for a fun and interesting class trip? Then look no further, photonics workshops and lab visits are fantastic!

Photonics, the fascinating science of light, is used in all kinds of high-tech applications: from cancer treatment and healthy fries to 3D printed organs and self-driving cars.

B-PHOT, Brussels Photonics offers you a variety of formulas for your visit.

Formula 1:

The Photonics Explorer is a kind of lab-in-a-box that can be used in the classroom to experiment with photonics. Lesson activities with lenses, lasers, LEDs and more, allow a class of up to 30 students to discover the fascinating world of light. These experiments are closely related to the physics curriculum.

Formula 2

Looking for something more creative? Then make yourself a boat powered by solar energy, art using polarisers, holograms, or try one of the PHABLABS 4.0 workshops. Or paint with light!

Formula 3

Get acquainted with photonics and its applications. Visit the laser lab and learn how laser beams can sort fries. Or just take a peek into the clean room or our photonics production hall.

The pupils are very curious and eager to work, they love to get started by themselves.

These formulas can also be combined and are all possible at two addresses:

VUB, Pleinlaan 2, 1050 Brussels
Photonics Innovation Center, Vollezelestraat 46, 1755 Gooik
