We present information regarding two LaserFest events that happened at our home institution (IPFW). Over the past Summer (2010) we ran a day camp for high school age students as well as a workshop for high school teachers. The day camp had several purposes: to teach kid's about lasers as well as providing "fun" activities featuring lasers. The workshop was designed to have teachers learn more about lasers and light so that they can incorporate them into their classes. We will present information regarding the activities we developed.
