Mississippi light education
The Mississippi LIGHT Education programs are the roots of the Mississippi LIGHT Festival.
Through the MsLIGHT Education program (see below) we connect S.T.E.A.M. education & S.T.E.A.M professions so that our future workforce is ready for their future jobs.
<The U.S. needs 1 million more S.T.E.A.M. Professionals over the next decade than we are projected to produce at the current rate.>
ZACHARY WHITE, an architect student of Mississippi State University, developed two pieces for the 2017 Mississippi LIGHT Festival. He starting working with the LIGHT Collaborative by volunteering to assist in creating a space for the silent disco.....
.....Through his time with us he was exposed to the world of light & became interested in exploring it further with his own creation.
Through the skill sharing & collaboration programs at MsLIGHT Collaborative he worked over Skype with an artist in the U.K. who helped him develop his concept & then with an electrician in Mississippi to realise it.
