LIGHT Illuminated: Come experience art and technology at play while learning about the value and importance of light and light-based technologies. LIGHT Illuminated celebrates the United Nations' International Year of Light by presenting a new, interactive exhibition that invites visitors to explore the worlds of optics and physics.
THEMUSEUM has partnered with the University of Waterloo's student chapter of The Optical Society and other global leaders in the fields of optics and photonics to present a new exhibition: LIGHT Illuminated. This exhibition enables students to learn about the basic principles and properties of light by bouncing, bending and reflecting light through hands-on interactives. This exhibition will feature numerous interactive installations that visitors of all ages can enjoy, including a laser maze, body heat cameras, colour-mixing stations and more! The exhibition also includes artworks by Stefan A. Rose and Laura De Decker.
LIGHT Illuminated is being presented in partnership with the University of Waterloo, UW's student chapter of The Optical Society, the Institute for Quantum Computing, Christie Digital and more.
