Lancaster County students use programming skills for holiday light show

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Students in the Conestoga Valley School District showed off their computer programming skills by creating a holiday light show.

The Technology Student Association organized the light show.

Eight teams of students grades 7-10 have been working on this project over the last couple of months. They used a software called Light-O-Rama to develop the show.

“It really has led me down the path of engineering and aerospace and different engineering jobs like that, dealing with technology,” said Samuel Jones, a 10th-grade student.

“Our students don’t traditionally get to show off their works. It’s very difficult for them. So this is a way that the tech geek gets to show off their artistic side,” said Chris Miller, the Technology Student Association adviser.

The show is timed to music and was previewed Wednesday night at Conestoga Valley Middle School. Public showings are on Fridays and Saturdays in December. Show times are 6:30, 7:30 & 8:30 p.m.

This is the second year Conestoga Valley’s TSA has held a light show.
