Everyday Energy

Everyday Energy School Program

Program Description

This program allows students to observe how their own energy can be converted into movement. They will also investigate how various forms of energy can be used to power everyday devices. As a hands-on case study, students explore the effect of a dam’s height, and observe how energy from falling water can be converted into the energy to light up an LED bulb.
