International Day of Light

TLA is a bronze sponsor of this event being presented by Optics Valley, a committee of the Arizona Technology Council, SPIE, and Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium.

Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium and Optics Valley will host a live-streamed celebration of light, optics and photonics that make our lives better every day! Join us for this fun, free, virtual family event to explore and discover light, lasers, and Arizona’s world leaders in the science of light.

The International Day of Light is a global initiative to appreciate light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light allows different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrate how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.
