HoloCenter Field Trips and Holography in School
Students learn about light and holograms at the HoloCenter and through our Holography in School program.
Field trips involve a tour of the exhibitions and a hologram making demonstration. Classes are broken up into groups and cycle through 2 or 3 activities.
For students to each make a hologram, groups of less than 10 students and additional time is required.
Other workshops that we offer include: understanding light and color, drawing in augmented reality, making kaleidoscopes, polarized light sculptures and making a spectroscopes.
We can accommodate groups for a single session or a multi-day program. Field trips can run 45 – 120 minutes depending on student age group and the level of learning you are looking for.
Field trips to the HoloCenter on Governors Island occur on Thursdays and Fridays (September 5 – October 25 in 2019).
Holography in School workshops offered throughout the year.

This program was established by education grants from SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics. We are looking for further sponsorship to expand the program and enable us to offer free education opportunities to NYC school students.
