|At Issue: Light Pollution
Columbus Public Schools
This lesson investigates light pollution in the night sky. Students conduct
the investigation using local resources, the Internet, digital cameras,
computer-based sensing probeware, and laptop computers. Analysis of the
data and synthesis of their discoveries by student investigation teams lead
to recommendations for modifications to lighting practices and uses. Student
groups make presentations to a panel of city planners and community members.
At Issue: Light Pollution is designed for seventh and eighth graders,
but could be modified for younger or older students.
