Halco Donates Linear Lamps to Support High School Program

Halco Lighting Technologies® has donated ProLume® F54T5/850/HO/ECO/IC 5000K 54W HO lamps to Kell High School Robotics Team in Marietta, Georgia.

The ProLume lamps were installed in the team’s Kell Robotics Innovation Center, an afterschool student research and development center that encourages student interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

Halco’s lamp donation replaced Kell’s existing outdated 75W 96-inch T12 cool white lamps, which improved the lighting throughout the center to create a more efficient workspace. The new lamps provide longer life and increased energy savings—approximately 25 percent. Ideal for high bay fixture applications like the Kell Robotics Innovation Center, the new installation also reduces maintenance costs.

“The Kell Robotics team would like to profusely thank Halco Lighting for the contribution of 5000K HO T5 bulbs,” says Ed Barker, Community Volunteer Program director of the Kell High School Robotics Team. “This lighting installation has transformed our workspace.”

Over the past four years, the Kell Robotics Team has participated in over 130 events, presentations, and briefings. Earlier this year, the team was even invited to exhibit

at the White House and briefed the U.S. Congressional Robotics Caucus on the value of co-curricular STEM activities to national priorities such as defense, energy, education, the environment, and national security.

“Halco is proud to contribute our ProLume T5 High Output linear lamps to such an impactful, local group,” says Kim Cook, president and COO. “The Kell Robotics team has taken great strides to support their mission of developing the next generation of leaders eager to solve problems and reach their career potential. We’re excited to have the opportunity to support the Kell team.”
