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.
Program Options: Energy Connections is available as either a large group assembly or an in-depth residency.
ASSEMBLY MAX: 250 students
