It’s officially summer and with summer comes baseball games, backyard BBQs and trips to the pool. But if you’re a parent of school-aged children, it also means finding activities to keep your kids entertained during summer vacation. This summer, keep your kids engaged with fun and educational energy-related activities!
Did you know: Incandescent light bulbs only convert about 10 percent of the energy they consume into light and the rest is released as heat. The Energy Department’s Energy Bike demonstrates the physical effort it takes to power incandescent, compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs. Students from Churchill Road Elementary School in Virginia recently pedaled for power at their Earth Day assembly, learning firsthand about energy efficiency.
This is just one of the many energy-themed activities available to parents and kids! Visit HERE to learn more.
