50 years ago, three brave astronauts, with the support of all of America, hurtled through outer space toward the moon. Everyone knows that one small step led to a giant leap for mankind. But did you know that lasers were an important part of it all? One of the most important missions on the moon was to install a giant mirror, so that scientists from Earth could bounce a special laser off it and measure EXACTLY how far the moon was. Since we know the exact speed of light, scientists measured how long it took [...]

But it can be difficult for a PTA or PTO to find an appropriate assembly—one that appeals to every [...]
Our team at Prismatic Magic would like to congratulate our fellow scientists at NASA for the successful landing of Mars Lander, InSight. The Lander is a culmination of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Thanks to educational missions like these, we learn more about our solar system and ourselves. Just as importantly, it is an inspiration children and students everywhere and a testament to our education our schools provide. Our Laser Science Teachers appreciate that going to Mars can be the ultimate in education outreach. Of course we are particularly excited here that InSight carries a laser [...]
Few things are more important than keeping bullying out of our schools. Finding the right anti-bullying assembly helps ensure our students learn how to spot and avoid bullying behavior. But not every assembly out there is successful, and studies have shown many programs have mixed results1.
