Itty bitty electrons are on the move, and it's amazing what they can do! We'll explore the wacky world of electrostatics, learn how renewable technologies like wind turbines and solar cells can power our cities, and witness the awesome power of a high voltage current. Topics include electrostatics, electrical currents, renewable energy, and safety. Note: This program works best in a room that can be darkened. Unless requested otherwise, this assembly includes use of an open flame.

Assembly programs are a great way to bring classrooms together for a learning adventure.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
