#PowerShiftWR Family Energy Fair

Description: Presented by #PowerShiftWR coordinator Waterloo Global Science Initiative, guests were invited to join the TREC Education (a leading provider of energy education programs) and local community partners for a family energy fair on April 23rd. Event attendees enjoyed the opportunity to participate in activities including Wind & Solar 101, Energy Scramble and Captain Conductor. They learned such things as the mechanics of wind energy with model wind turbines and how to harness the sun's power while learning how solar power is converted into electrical energy. Participants also learned about the characteristics of insulators and conductors by creating a circuit by holding hands and testing the conduction properties of various materials.
