  Description LaserFest 2010 included many physics outreach programs around the world with programming styled 'LaserFest On The Road'. We have invited leaders from many of these programs to share activity ideas both from LaserFest and from related laser-based physics demonstration shows and exhibits. The "focus" is on items you can use in both outreach and the classroom. We'll look (with our one remaining good eye!) at a top 20 laser demo list. We share some of our favorite exhibits and construction techniques. We’ll build a few take-home pieces. Safety discussions about how to use lasers with (not on!) students and the public will of course be included. And don't forget, we'll network, share, and develop plenty of new ideas for laserific road show gear. For more information, check for updates. [LaserFest programming originally supported by a consortium led by APS and the Optical Society.]
