The Energize Connecticut Center invites children and parents to become ‘Clean Energy Champions’ this summer and learn about Earth’s renewable energies – sun, wind and water. On Friday, July 21, the kid-friendly series explores wind power and how we can use it.
The event will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Energize Connecticut Center, 122 Universal Drive North, North Haven (next to Panera Bread in the Target Plaza). It is free of charge and open to the public.
During the afternoon event, Brian Driscoll, owner and founder of New Haven-based Phoenix Press, will share how he uses wind turbines to power his commercial printing business. Additionally, Little Scientist, LLC., along with Center staff, will provide hands-on wind-related activities and experiments, such as:
Building a model wind turbine
Experimenting with green powered circuits
The next event in the Renewable Energy Summer Series will be on Friday, August 18, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., where guests will have the opportunity to learn about water power.
The Energize Connecticut Center’s family programming is designed to provide entertainment for children of all ages and their families while simultaneously educating them on the impact our energy consumption has on the planet, and ways to be more energy efficient.
