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.

Climb the Atrium staircase to reach the Second Floor, stroll the catwalks, and venture into the Morpheus Room. Find the back stairwells leading to the Second and Third floors for a journey through the “History of Light.”

Wherever you are in the showroom, don’t forget to look up, left, right, and all around. Click on the arrows to progress through the tour, click on any spot on the floor to go there instantly, and click-and-drag your mouse to rotate your view in any direction—to the left, right, up or down.
