Fuel Up! Renewable Energies

This engaging, hands-on program features nine stations, which are facilitated by Museum staff and adult volunteers from your school. Stations focus on family learning and are an exciting way to explore alternative energy, understand the carbon cycle, investigate the microscopic world of plants with a digital microscope and discover the abundant energy around us. Participants will even have a chance to use this knowledge to make their own alternatively powered model car!
