Tomorrow's Energy Today with Field Trip

Carbon dioxide soap bubbles and an alternative energy house are just two of the many activities students will be involved in as we tackle the diverse field of energy. Tomorrow’s Energy Today is a hands-on, interactive program designed to provide students with the opportunity to discuss many different forms and sources of energy and whether they are renewable or nonrenewable. Students also get to act out an energy transfer chain, exploring potential (stored) and kinetic (movement) energy, and dive into the carbon cycle.
