We describe a tabletop experiment for the direct measurement of the speed of light to an accuracy of a few percent. The experiment is accessible to students not majoring in science or engineering. The experiment can include a measurement of the index of refraction of a sample. We discuss the experimental apparatus and safety considerations. The results and limitations of the experiment are analyzed, based partly on our experience in employing the experiment in student laboratories.
