Transcript of A New Look at Sidewalks

Something to think about . . .
Someday you can design your own sidewalk or walk way.
If I could design my own sidewalk, I would create colorful swirls and patterns.
Next time you see the street lights at night, think about how interesting it would be to have glowing sidewalks and bike lanes as well.
Scientist creates glow in the dark sidewalks and walkways.
Mexican scientist, Jose Carlos Rubio, invented a new way to light up streets at night.
Rubio found a way to take light blocking flakes out of the concrete so it could absorb sunlight.
This creates the solar power needed to light up the surfaces.
Why should we think about glowing sidewalks?
Cities can spend between 25% to 50% of their energy bills to power streetlights.
Glowing sidewalks can help cities use less power.
Cities can reduce their energy bills.
People can pay less in city taxes.
Cities can use tax money in different ways to help their communities.
The future looks bright!
Rubio's new invention can last for up to 100 years.
Other current fluorescent materials may only last 3 years.
So his invention can help communities light up at night, and save taxpayers a lot of money in the future.
