Carlmont’s Engineering and Green Technology students presented their light fixture projects on Friday, Apr. 8 during second and third period.

During the 90 minute STAR testing periods, the engineering students presented their inexpensive and energy efficient light fixture which are going to be used by people with low income and limited access to electricity.

Casey O’Hara, a Carlmont green technology teacher, commented, “We’re designing these projects for the Appropriate Technology Collaborative using their constraints to come up with some pretty neat solutions.”

Appropriate Technology Collaborative is a company that works to create technologies for underprivileged people to improve their quality of life.

Some of the best projects made by Carlmont students will be presented to the ATC so they can test the projects.

Most projects are tested in rural Mayan villages in Guatemala or in similar villages in Africa.

Many designs from previous years can also be view at the Appropriate Technology Collaborative website.
