In the last decades, holography has been used in a wide variety of applications in many different fields. In this paper, a study case of using holography in High School teaching will be presented. A holographic system for white- light reflection and transmission holograms was implemented and developed for teaching optics to science and visual arts students. Particular emphasis will be put on basic holographic principles, experimental holographic techniques, chemical processing and color control of holograms. The results obtained show an improvement of the learning and creative processes and the advantages of interdisciplinary and co-operation between Universities and High Schools.
