“Should elementary age children receive lighting education? Is it enough to simply wait and hope that students become interested in lighting when they enroll in college or during the job hunt? Lighting expert Barrie Wilde has written an interesting article that challenges the Lighting Industry to look at new ways of introducing lighting to students at an earlier age.

I feel like that would be too much too young but it is a good idea! I’m 16 and I started learning about lighting through my high school when I was 14.

I feel that if you want to teach kids as early as six they will not understand many of the concepts but if high schools could teach their students like my school does, more students would pick lighting as a profession. Maybe someone could visit schools who don’t have programs and introduce teenagers to the profession at an age they can understand and when their future is a much more tangible subject.
