Spark your curiosity of the wonders of electricity in this interactive exhibit. Just as Ben Franklin engaged in hands-on experimentation with electricity, you will too! Insulate yourself from the hair-raising, static electricity effects of the Van der Graaf generator. Explore energy consumption, generation, and how to interact safely around this important form of energy. Learn about the important jobs of the lineman and electrical engineers and dress the part as you learn about the equipment and technology that is used to power all of the electronics in your life. Learn how electricity is created and explore-the energy sources needed to generate our electricity. Find out which of your friends might glow in our Electron Excitement Room. All Charged Up! will cater to a wide audience and encourage visitors to think critically and explore the science, technology, and engineering behind electricity.
