Fueling the Future Exhibit
From the horse and buggy to the internet, the world witnessed vast technological advances through the 19th and 20th centuries, many of them based on fossil fuel consumption. Meeting the world’s growing energy demand is now one of our greatest challenges. The new High Desert Museum exhibit Fueling the Future/Energizando el Futuro looks ahead with hope in the face of climate change, exploring renewable energy in the high desert. The original exhibit will be displayed in both English and Spanish.
The exhibit engages kids of all ages and explores innovative technologies through interactive ways. Design and test your own wind turbine. Hop on a bike that powers different kinds of light bulbs. Find the best home for a new energy plant. The hands-on exhibit invites visitors to explore and be part of this important conversation. It fosters a greater understanding of where our energy comes from and how this connects to climate change.
Fueling the Future/Energizando el Futuro will be on display through March 8, 2020 and is free with museum admission.
