Energize Me! with virtual tour and individual student kits| 4-5 Grade ? 

 Take an energetic tour of our energy exhibit while learning
about the different ways in which energy can be transferred through
heat, light, sound or electrical currents. They’ll use their knowledge
of energy tr
ansfers to explore renewable energy, design and test a device which converts energy from one type to another.

Program Details


Prerecorded Activities:

Examples of electrical energy being converted to heat, light or sound

Renewable energy resources vs. Non-renewable energy

Exhibit Walkthrough, highlight the following: Jacob’s Ladder & Hamster wheel, Waterways- the power of water and Tesla Coil

Live Activities:

Simple Circuit or battery activity

Hydropower at home (moving water)

Thermal Tower (moving heat and powering a pinwheel)


What happened to the energy generated in the hamster wheel?

Where does the energy in a battery come from, do batteries make energy?


Content Goals:

At the conclusion of this program, students should be able to:

Recognize that energy can be transferred from place to place

Understand that electrical currents are complete paths of charged particles that move through a conductor.

Understand that energy isn’t made or produced but can be stored, converted and transferred

Performance Goals:

During this program students will:

Recognize when energy has been transferred

Communicate how energy is transformed to solve a problem

Create a device that transfers energy using light, heat or sound

Standards Alignment

National Standards

NGSS Standards

4PS3-2: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat and electric currents

4PS3-4: Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one to another

4-ESS3-1: Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
