Ask a child to describe science in just one word, and you’ll probably hear “fun!” To young kids, hands-on science activities satisfy natural curiosities and are motivating, almost magical feats.
But science isn’t just about experiments that yield amazing results, It’s also about using knowledge to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. In today’s energy crisis, we're constantly looking at the science behind our sources of energy. Where does power come from, and how can we use it efficiently? Introduce your kid to some of these big energy issues and show him how we can begin to think about alternatives with this jaw-dropping demonstration of an ultra-efficient balloon powered car!
