SEAS students get their glow on! Over the past couple of weeks, engineering students have had the chance to learn about and tinker away at projects involving all things lights at weekly Project Nights. Organized by the Active Learning Labs, the goal of Project Nights is to provide a space for students to work on whatever they may want to work on, from guided tasks to assignments to personal projects—all while having fun and enjoying the company of other SEAS students. At a recent Project Night, many students put previous weeks' lessons on LED lights and batteries to the test and applied them to their own projects.

To get in on the fun yourself, drop by Pierce G11 on Wednesday nights at 6PM.
