|Efficiency, Conservation and Recycling combine for a fun and interactive way to learn about smart energy choices!
would you like to be an Energy SUPER HERO? You may or may not
want to wear a cape, but we're sure you'll feel empowered to do
your part to make smart energy choices once you've experienced
our newest traveling exhibit Conservation Questsm
and our companion thematic program POWER PLAY!
Just about this time of year most folks are turning their
attention to energy efficiency option in their homes. But what
about saving money and energy by making different food choices
or transportation choices? How about re-purposing an item you
would normally throw away and turn it into something useful
which is called "upcycling"? ECHO's newest exhibit brings
together all these themes in a fun, colorful, highly
interactive, hands-on exhibit that teaches us all about energy.
What it is, where it comes from and how we use it. It also
teaches us why it so important to use it wisely.
|The exhibit, opening September 25, features ten
displays and dozens upon dozens of activities that engage and
educated visitors of all ages. Things that stack, bang, twirl,
pop, press, turn, slide and light up are all available, each
with a lesson about making smart energy choices and the benefits
of living an efficient, healthy lifestyle while conserving
energy in the process.
Accompanying this exhibit is our POWER PLAY series of
events touching upon the variety of ways you can conserve energy
and live more efficiently.
