Abstract: The U.S. National Optical Astronomy Observatory's Education and Public Outreach group has produced a Quality Lighting Teaching Kit. The kits are designed around problem-based learning scenarios. The kit's six activities allow students to address real lighting problems that relate to wildlife, sky glow, aging eyes, energy consumption, safety, and light trespass. The activities are optimized for 11–16 year olds. As part of the IAU100 celebration, the kits will be manufactured and made available to observatories and communities around the world.
