Roald Amundsen High School’s team Starry Chicago designed a program that educates the community about the importance of preserving the night sky and that advocates for dark-sky friendly policies in order to mitigate the harmful effects of light pollution.

They educate people about the night sky through many channels. They recruit elementary students to be "star ambassadors," advocates for keeping the sky free of light pollution with with demonstrated interest in the stars; host sidewalk astronomy events throughout their community in Andersonville; and have advocated for the Chicago Smart Lighting Project with members of the Chicago Infrastructure Trust and Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
