Student Organization Helping make Philadelphia brighter one lightbulb and mind at a time

Atomic Robotics 4-H Club wants to help Philadelphia Home Owners Light up the Night by replacing their burnt our front house lights with our LED light bulbs. Students are selling the LED light bulbs like the girl scouts sell cookies to raise funds.
Dec. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- The Atomic Robotics 4-H Club is announcing the start of a campaign to help Philadelphia Home Owners Light up the Night by replacing their burnt our front house lights low energy LED light bulbs. We have partnered with US FIRST a national organization dedicated to inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders.  We have also teamed up with two Philadelphia Businesses that are dedicated to providing people with the goods and services they need to reduce their impact on the planet.  
•   The Big Green Earth Store Located at 9th and South St Center City Philly
•   Save Some Green Located at 20th and Chestnut St Center City Philly

People and businesses that purchase the LED light bulbs will save money and help local high school students compete at the FIRST Robotics World Championship as well as score scholarships to top universities!  Light Bulbs can be purchased at the two participating stores or online at

The light bulbs last over 20,000 hours and, if used 3 hours a day, last over 9 YEARS (current incandescent light bulbs last a mere 3-4 months at the same rate). This means: saving money on bulbs and on your electric bill! In fact, within one year, these bulbs pay for themselves in just one year.  Plus 1/2 of each purchase goes to the team and is a tax deductible donation.

Too many of Philadelphia’s streets are dark and unlit making safety an issue. The Light Bulb the Atomic Robotics team are selling will last 12 years, reduce, local resident energy bills and make the streets of Philadelphia a little brighter and safer.

Residents won’t have to switch out that light bulb for a decade
•   No ladders
•   No tools
•   No hassle
•   No Injuries
•   Residents won’t have to clean bugs out of the lamp since these LED light bulbs do not attract bugs

Details about the bulbs:
•   dimmable to 5% light output
•   omni-directional (light in all directions, like an incandescent)
•   5-year warranty
•   25,000-hour life
•   The 450-lumen 8.5W bulb that directly replaces a 40W incandescent bulb!
•   The 800-lumen 13.5W bulb that directly replaces a 60W incandescent bulb!

The team is offering 8.5 W for $15 a bulb and the 13.5W for $30 a bulb. These bulbs do not require any special disposal, they carry no radiation or environmentally unfriendly chemicals, they do not heat up, they have a plastic casing so they do not break, and they plug into all of your current devices. The money raised from these light-bulb sales goes towards raising funds for our robot building, learning and fun.

Light Bulbs can be purchased at the two participating stores or online at

So please, help our students Brighten up your world!  Brighter Kids & Streets means a brighter future.
