Measuring Light with Useful Tools
Peek, Gina; Hebert, Paulette; Frazier, Robert Scott; Knag, Mihyun
Journal of Extension, v51 n5 Article 5TOT7 Oct 2013
Lighting, a necessary part of our home and work environment, is often considered as an afterthought. This article describes tools that Extension educators (Agriculture, Family and Consumer Sciences, and 4-H) can use to measure light levels. 4-H youth may also participate. These tools include light meters and Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) standards. Using the tools as described is new and innovative programming, as it is unlikely that educators or youth have measured light levels before and compared them to industry standards.
