The wind and solar powered Mobile Energy Lab boasts 44-feet of hands-on learning stations in renewable energy, oil and gas, energy conservation, provides models that demonstrate hydropower, energy efficiency, and more. Or perhaps the student's would like to try their hand at building their own solar or wind powered structures, test their knowledge in renewable energy, or use peddle power to create electricity. We visit for the entire day to maximize your student's access to this unique, one-of-a-kind exhibit.

Please arrange for a parent, student, teacher’s aide, or other volunteer to assist with the students and other needs of our staff during the entire day of the tour.
