AWEsome Energy (Air, Water, Electricity) is designed to teach children that air, water, and electricity are forces found in nature, and that we can harness air and water to create electricity and do work. AWEsome Electricity opened in 2012 and has received positive feedback from our visitors and families. DCM is now embarking on the design, fabrication and installation of the Air and Water Exhibits.

AWEsome Energy will allow children to better experience the “cause and effect” of their actions on energy sources, to change variables and see the impact, and to work collaboratively with family members and peers to experiment, explore problems, and create solutions. This permanent exhibit will include experiences for children of all ages and abilities.
