Lest We Forget Light

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them.”

A LIGHT OF REMEMBRANCE

The Lest We Forget Light is developed by students with partners to code, design, manufacture and distribute.

We are creating a small 3D printed, LED light programmed to flash ‘Lest We Forget’ in Morse Code as a permanent Canadian war memorial for organizations and individuals.

The lights will be for all Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

Every night the lights will turn on at sunset and turn off at sunrise.

TECHNICAL & HARDWARE

We will be working on this light throughout the year in order for it to be ready for Remembrance Day on November 11, 2019.
