Global Classrooms of Chicago Visits Lightology for Hands-On Education

Global Classrooms of Chicago - Students on the Lightology Roof Deck

On Wednesday, a lively and engaged crew of high school students from Global Classrooms of Chicago stopped by our showroom for a hands-on learning experience. Students from Kenny Bae’s Urban Planning class visited Lightology to learn about lighting and electricity.

It was a different crowd than our usual student tours, typically given to college-aged students of design. We welcomed the younger group with open arms and were thrilled to find them so captivated by the tour, led by Lightology sales consultant and lighting expert, Jeremy Baker.

Favoring hands-on experience over textbook learning, Global Classrooms of Chicago engages students from various Chicago public schools in a supplementary, industry-driven education.

They are working on a project to re-light a room with more energy-efficient, less expensive fixtures. They stopped by today to get a feel for creative, more efficient & economic ways of doing so. At the end of their project they will submit a business proposal, and the best plan will be used to re-light one room of their school.

About Global Classrooms

Established in 2001, Global Classrooms has grown into an international program working in 24 cities around the world. Sponsored by the United Nations Association of the USA (USA-UN), the program’s purpose is teaching students in underserved communities to be global citizens by bridging “the gap in the Model UN community between experienced programs and traditionally underserved public schools.” (USNA.org)

At the core of the Global Classrooms’ curriculum is the Model UN Conference, where students roleplay as international delegates and debate a variety of issues that challenge today’s global community.

Chicago’s Model UN Summit is TODAY!   (April 26, 2013)

You light up my life.

I’ll leave the light on for you.

Come on baby, light my fire.

If you ask us, sounds like light and love are the perfect pair. So it makes sense why so many couples are coming to Lightology to capture the true essence of their love … in their engagement photos!

Misha Media Photography took advantage of EVERY inch of our showroom and rooftop deck. Don’t they look so cool sitting in the Morpheus Room (located on the second floor of our showroom) with the Andy Warhol behind them?!

Ashley Witmer Photography, Tunwa Yee of Edward Fox Photography and Photographer Chris Murphy captured the breathtaking skyline and gorgeous landscaping on our rooftop garden. And the couples don’t look half bad either!

Thanks so much to the photographers and couples Anna and Ron, Sarah and Mark, Nikki and Bhavesh, and Michelle and Mike! We wish you all a very bright future!

You can see more photos of these couples under fan photos on our facebook page.
