Our students saw a fresh perspective on why engaging in bullying and cyberbullying, or simply standing by when someone else is being bullied, is so detrimental. The program reinforces the key character attributes that make for a successful team - i.e.,respect, integrity, generosity, honesty, and truth. 
The anti-bullying message  integrates a dynamic live presentation with an exciting laser show, Laser Team is well-suited for today's visually-oriented learners ensuring that the program has a lasting impact.
