NSF Engineering Research Center for Smart Lighting Summer Program


This program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and began in 2009.

Program Objectives

The program is designed to introduce high school students to the basic concepts of digital smart lighting. In doing so, students will see the applications go a step further than the general concept of lighting an area. 

Students will be able to understand the fundamental electronic concepts, digital lighting and light emitting diodes (LED). Furthermore, the software instrument known as mobile studio will further cement these concepts. Students will be able to understand the fundamental electronic concepts, digital lighting and light emitting diodes (LED).
