We haven’t taken enough field trips lately, so today we decided to go to Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin. It was my daughter’s suggestion and it was a good one!
We experienced everything from lying on a bed of nails, to having our hair stand on end from electric current, to a tour of the solar system in 3-D.
However, what made me most excited (although the Les Paul exhibit was a close second…) was the “Energy and Ingenuity” exhibit. Here we learned all about how to save energy and how to create clean energy. For example, I learned that driving 60 mph is the optimal speed for most cars on the highway. Driving faster than that uses up *a lot* of extra energy.
I love that organizations like Discovery World is taking the initiative to teach the new generation about clean energy and energy conservation. Because… if it’s ingrained from an early age, it’s just second nature.
How great would it be if the new generation would view clean energy as the norm, rather than a science project!?!
Like what you read? Pass on the goodness!
