Ecolamp

Ecolamp is a new project that explores the creative possibilities of LEDs. This new technology is super efficient and very versatile. The project focuses on issues of energy use and sustainability while giving students the opportunity to develop their own creative ideas. As with most new technology designers want to find its true form. This hasn’t happened yet with LED strip lighting and so your students are presented with a great opportunity to invent a whole new style of lighting. This project can be aimed at Years 8-10 and students end up with a lamp with very high take-home value. You won’t see any of these projects left at the end of term.
