Teaching light pollution through citizen science

Our didactic unit

We would like to invite school students to contribute to our project, so we have developed some learning materials. The text discusses artificial light at night effects, review some different types of light pollution, study some of their negative effects and helps to understand how to install lighting sources in such a way that the negative impact is minimized.
