Young's Experiment Demo

Regarding Young's diffraction experiment (double slit):
Is there any way a person can participate in or observe an actual
performance of Young's twin slit experiment? Are there any summer camps
or seminars on physics or science in the USA that offer such
opportunities? I am familiar with the nature and principles of the
experiment, but would really like to actually observe it in a laboratory
I live in Sarasota, Florida, but would be will to travel to any stateside venue!
You need not leave the comfort of your computer chair to witness Young's
experiment. There are several web sites that do the experiment for you.
Search the terms: "Young's double slit" on www.google.com and you will find
several as well as other links. You might also want to search the topic
"Bell's paradox" which is a related topic.
