Laser Mazes (Optics) 11+

lasermazeClass: Laser Mazes (Optics) 11+ – For this hands-on outreach class at the MIT Edgerton Center. We need a Minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 24.

Description: This class is appropriate for students ages 11 and up. A previous understanding of protractors, angles and degrees is preferable. In this activity teams of students are challenged to direct a beam of laser light through a maze using mirrors. Students begin by experimenting with mirrors to cause the laser light to “hit” a bullseye. They then review concepts of angles and hypothesize about how light reflects from a surface. From these experiences students determine that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. Using this knowledge, students first model and then implement the path of the laser light through the different mazes.

Age: This activity is appropriate for students aged 11 and up. Children must be able to function in the classroom independently. The size of the classroom does not allow for parents to remain in the room during class. You are, however,  welcome to wait quietly in the hall outside the classroom if you need to be immediately available for your children. In addition there are also plenty of interns available to help the kids through the activities.

Travel Tips: Visitor parking in the MIT-Kresge parking lot is limited. Permits can be purchased for $26.00 by completing and submitting the PDF form at least five days in advance. The other MIT Visitors lots rates are varied. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.
