National Daylight Appreciation Day and Solatube International Celebrate the Benefits of Sunlight on the Longest Day of the Year
Date:6/13/2013

Vista, Calif. (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Who doesn’t love bright sunny rooms in their home? Well, what about classrooms, where kids spend so many hours of their lives? Studies show (Heshong Mahone) that students in classrooms with daylight actually perform better on tests and have higher attendance rates.

National Daylight Appreciation Day (June 21, 2013) was created as a way to increase awareness about the benefits of incorporating daylight in all aspects of our lives. Since daylight is free and energy efficient (no electric lights needed), there is a movement afoot to incorporate it everywhere from homes and offices to colleges, universities and schools.

For example:

  •     Several studies have shown that natural daylighting in schools increases student performance. One study, completed for the California Energy Commission, found that among 12 models considered, there was on average a 21% improvement in student learning rates from those in classrooms with the least amount of daylight compared to those with the most.

  •     Natural light contributes to increased concentration among occupants and positively affects their emotional well-being and overall mood. Studies reveal that students in rooms lit by an increased amount of daylight consistently progress 20 percent faster in math and 26 percent faster in reading.
