Energy Connections

Ever wonder how much energy it takes to power a light bulb? Your students will find out by becoming the source of energy, using a pedal bike generator! They'll learn how we use energy in our daily lives and where this energy comes from. Through dynamic demonstrations, our presenters encourage students to use energy wisely.
