Energy Bus

2nd – 5th Grades

Here comes the Energy Bus!

A presentation covering the basics of electricity, magnetism, and renewable energy sources appears in the form of a school bus. In this hands-on program, children will have the hair-raising experience of a Van De Graaff  generator and work a manual hand-crank generator to learn how kinetic energy is converted into electricity. Your group will participate in fascinating experiments with magnets and discover what an electromagnet can do. Demonstrations will include wind power, use of a photovoltaic cell and more!
