LESA ERC Curriculum Development-Summer Institute
(4 day program – July 11 through 18)
The LESA ERC will offer a 4 day program for math, science and technology teachers with the objective of introducing the fundamental concepts of digital Smart Lighting and how the applications go beyond the standard concept of “lighting” a space. The program incorporates the teaching of fundamental electronic concepts, introduction of digital lighting & Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), the use of modern instrumentation, faculty presentations, multiple demonstrations, hands-on activities, and extensive lab tours including a visit to the Micro and Nano Fabrication Clean Room (a Class 1000 Cleanroom). The teachers are also given time to design curriculum based on the lessons learned. Many creative and engaging modules were designed by previous participants. The program is designed and facilitated with the assistance of faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students. Please sign up today by applying to the weblink form.
