Light Show

Last updated: 5/4/2018


We put together the annual CSE Winter Light Show: a display of over 250,000 lights individually sequenced to music every December in the Civil Engineering Courtyard. It hosts a huge variety of light features, including a snowman band, a 22’ tall lit tree, and a 12’ by 4’ LED matrix. We build and program the control boards, build the light features, and individually sequence each light to music. The show has become an annual campus tradition, as well as a Teslaworks tradition. We are looking to recruit as many as people as possible to work on the project. No experience is needed, and students from all types of majors contribute to the light show. If you love lights, consider helping out with this amazing event!

Meeting Time

For the fall, we want to have a consistent meeting time, but we don’t have one in place yet because not everyone knows what their schedule will look like.

General Focus Areas

Programming, CAD, soldering, electrical engineering, event coordination, metal/wood working, design, building
