My Students

My students are creative, passionate, dedicated, hard-working, and determined individuals. They love learning. I would love to create a fun learning environment for students with engaging and interactive lighting. Creating a comfortable learning space makes students want to be at school and more dedicated to their studies.

These students are our future!

Please help create an amazing learning environment for students.

My Project

These LED lights will create a fun and engaging atmosphere. I would use the different color lighting to represent different voice levels that are appropriate when working in groups in the classroom. These lights will serve as a classroom management technique as well as creating a fun space for students.

When teaching today's students it is important to use a variety of strategies and techniques to reach all learners.

We are moving to a learning environment where students show us how they learn best. These lights would aid and enhance learning in the classroom.
