LILLINGTON — You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to have fun with lasers.

Middle school students will get hands-on with this exciting area of technology during Central Carolina Community College’s “High Tech-High Touch” Laser Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the college’s Harnett County Campus.

Middle school students, with their parent or adult mentors, will be involved in fun and educational activities using lasers. Current students, alumni, faculty, and industrial representatives in the field will provide instruction for this event.  

The workshop begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon in the campus’s Etheridge Building. A break and snack will be provided. All participants must register as student/adult pairs. Space is limited to 15 pairs and registration is $10 per pair. The workshop will fill up quickly, so call Virginia Brown, (919) 718-7347 to sign up.

The workshop is sponsored by the CCCC Foundation and the college’s Laser and Photonics Engineering Technology program.
