Event Navigation

Join us for the grand opening of our NEW seasonal exhibit, All Charged Up!

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 de 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. Find out which of your friends might glow in our Electron Excitement Room. Discover all of this and MORE¬† in this brand new exhibit produced by DHDC’s own Exhibits team.

A members-only preview will be held on Friday September 20th from 7:00-8:30 pm. Not a member? Join Today!

Here’s a sneak peak of what’s in store!
