Based on our extremely positive experience from last year’s celebration of Photonics Day, we expect about 350-400 visitors for this year’s International Day of Light. University of Oulu SPIE Student Chapter will present fancy experiments for schoolkids and general public showing importance of light-based technologies nowadays and for future and will encourage people think like scientists. Dozens of local schools will send their delegates, who in turn will spread the word in own families and among friends. Besides, the event will be enjoy coverage in the local media, in the University and VTT websites. Thus, potential impact will affect tens of thousands people.
