Free energy camp offered
Efficiency Smart will host a free “Super Energy Heroes Summer Camp July 21-25 at Simpson Garden Park, 1291 Conneaut Ave., for students entering grades four through six.
The day camp is designed to help students develop an understanding of energy, its impact on our lives and the environment, and how to use energy wisely while having fun. Through exploratory, hands-on science projects and activities, campers will learn about the environmental and economic impacts of energy. Students who attend the summer camp will explore renewable energy models using K-Nex to build a wind turbine, solar car, water powered mill and a solar powered crank man.
Visit efficiencysmart.org for more information and to apply. For questions, call 877-889-3777.
Kids will also conduct a home energy audit and make energy on an energy bike to power light bulbs and appliances.
