Solar Spot

  • Energy everywhere!

    Did you know that energy can come from all different types of sources? The wind, the food we eat, steam and even stars like our sun create power!

    Explore energy and discover how we can harness the power of the sun and use it to power things we use every day, like phones, computer monitors and even refrigerators! Guests can also learn about power sources closer to home, like themselves!

    Let’s play and learn!

    • Rotate the swivel solar panel by the window. What happens when you move the panel? Did you notice anything change in the gallery?
    • Jump on the silver floor panels and see how much energy you can create! Check out the screens and the light tower to measure the energy you made.
    • Practice solar-energy-related words and phrases that you find in the gallery. Can you find any that are new to you?

    Let’s keep exploring! Take me to Tinker Track!
