Nature Friday: Energy

Environmental Education Centre

Join us for fun educational activities about energy including a science experiment, a Guess the watts game, and a demo of our DIY energy audit kit for our more mature learners (with the chance to win prizes)! Electricity is something that we use every day. Without it we couldn’t turn on our lights, cook dinner, or play video games! By being careful about how much electricity we use, we can save money and cut down on the greenhouse gas emissions that enter Alberta’s atmosphere. Come and check out the free tools that Town offers to help you out!
