The Science of today is the technology of tomorrow 

Technical Field-Trip

We give students the opportunity to go on technical field trips that can help them learn better. 

Hands on Experience

We create them actual learning situations and they get to experience. It learn while they actually do it.

Eco-Friendly Lighting Options

LiquidLights

A lot of people are changing to eco-friendly lighting options to cut down on their electricity bills, but more than that people are becoming aware of the precarious peril that the earth is in and are trying to make a difference in their own way. With office spaces also going green in the recent past, it is becoming a trend that won’t be extinguished anytime soon. In this article, we look at some of the types of eco-friendly lighting options that are available in the market today.

1. Two in one

Liquid lights are becoming the “it thing” in urban décor. The lighting system is made of recycled plastic filled with LED drips that give the impression of water. Experts believe that this lighting system was created to not only be eco-friendly but also to get people talking about water conservation.

2. Lego of Lighting

Nondesign’s led module is starting to make the round with their countless combination lighting system that is being touted as the “Lego of lighting”, this system gets people hands-on in their quest to be eco-friendly. The lighting system also gives the user the freedom to innovate and pay around as much as they can.

3. Economically-Friendly

The Nanoleaf Gem is the quintessential light bulb that is designed like a classic bulb but is filled with LED modules. This setup gives the aesthetic appeal of the light bulb while being completely different otherwise. The Gem is said to save a family about $81 a year.

4. Keep it Classic

Like the Nanoleaf Gem, there is another product in the market that that is designed exactly like the bulb in every which way but the energy output, in the end, is not as high as your usual copper filament bulbs. The manufacturer of these classic bulbs is Urban Chandy, and these bulbs are called LED Edison Bulbs in memory of Thomas Alva Edison.

5. Tape it up

Imagine living in a world where your traditional switchboards and lighting systems were all replaced by a system that is compact and more effective. Well, the good thing is that we don’t have to wait too long to experience that since Armacost has come out with a LED tape. The tape can be stuck throughout the house and gives the whole space a futuristic effect. Armacost themselves state that the use of LED tape will be limitless and that a lot of people will move to the highly sustainable lighting system. The best part is although they sound intricate they are not to be priced as highly as most people would expect such a product to be priced.

Light Bulbs

Light Bulbs

Each light bulb is unique and has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Here we look at some of the different types of light bulbs along with their pros and cons and also in what setting the light bulb can be used in.

1. Incandescent

The incandescent light bulbs are one of the most common types of light bulbs in the market. They typically last for about 700 to 1000 hours and tend to have an inviting, warm feeling. The light bulb though is not very energy efficient.

2. Halogen

The halogen bulbs are a variation of the incandescent light bulb and are a little bit more efficient than their predecessors. But the biggest problem with the halogen bulbs is that it heats up a lot. Due to this heating effect, halogen bulbs need to be handled carefully, even the smallest amount of oil from the hands of the user can cause the bulb to explode. But the halogen bulbs are still wildly used due to it being the closest bulb that emits “white light” and is often used in uner-cabinet lighting.

3. Fluorescent

Fluorescent light bulbs are starting to replace incandescent light bulbs but they still don’t offer the dimming feature. The light bulbs come with a number of different variations and are typically used to light up basements and attics. The fluorescent light bulbs also come in varying colours and can thus be used for a number of different purposes.

4. CFLs

CFLs are 10 times more efficient that incandescent light bulbs and consume only half the energy. But the biggest problem with CFLs is that it contains trace amounts of mercury which can become an issue if there is breakage of any kind. The CFLs last for about 7000 to 10000 hours and can be used in any place the incandescent lights used to be used.

5. LED

The light emitting diode is the next big thing in lighting technology. The reason it is the next big thing is because of the scalability issues that the LED faces. The LEDs are lot more energy efficient that all of its previous counterparts but don’t emit diffusing lights. LEDs are known to only produce directional light and hence can’t be used in lighting up large spaces unless a lot of LEDs are grouped together. For now LEDs are being used in cabinet lighting. LEDs are also a lot more expensive than the typical CFL bulb making it difficult for common households to utilise it. But more and more innovation is happening in the LED space, and the future looks bright, to say the least.
