Festival Of Lights: A Hands-On Lighting Collaborative

The Festival of Lights provided students with an opportunity to experience a teamwork environment among both peers and professionals. During this full day activity, which served as a final project in the Lighting Design class, the students developed lighting displays on campus relating to a particular theme. Lighting products ranging from linear lighting, spot lighting, RGB lighting and more were donated from various manufacturers and professionals for students to experiment with and integrate into their displays. Students presented their ideas and responded to a reflection survey. This activity both enhanced the learning experience for the students and presented an awareness of lighting design to the entire campus community.
