Energy & Life!

Thursday, November 7, 2019

This program is a fun, hands-on, and substantive introduction to energy basics. How does energy flow through and enable life on Earth? How have humans used energy in the past and present? We’ll explore photosynthesis, renewable energy, energy efficiency and conservation, the history of energy in our community and much more in ways that will engage both adults and older children! This program will feature the “Energy Bike,” a bicycle hooked up to a generator and various electrical loads – from light bulbs to a hairdryer – for a fun, “hands and feet on” exploration of energy. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will provide a station with information and a fun activity to help participants learn about renewable energy. This program is co-sponsored by Lafayette Open Space and the Lafayette Energy Sustainability Advisory Committee. For more information, contact Martin Ogle at Martin@EntrepreneurialEarth.com or 720-612-0506.
