This hands-on After School Program explores the energy in Light, Sound, Electricity, and more.  Students learn how they interpret, or even mis-interpret, the world around them.  They then use some of their own energy to explore the science of heat!  This is a program of hands-on activities, stunning demonstrations, and inquiry-based discussions.
