Design power

How can we generate the power we need without destroying the planet?

Power to the people and the planet!

Does electricity magically appear at the flick of a switch, or does it come from miles and miles away? What would life be like if we couldn’t turn on the lights, charge our devices, or start the car? How is Earth coping with all the energy seven billion people need?

Discover fun facts about electricity in this hands-on studio! Can lemons and potatoes power cell phones? Experiment with batteries, light bulbs and voltages. Travel back in time to the industrial age of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison—the fathers of electricity—and re-create their inventions. 

What new ways can you think of to light up a city? Design energy-efficient systems using all the tricks you’ve learnt. Build camping gadgets that borrow energy from the sun, wind, and water. With your supercharged creativity, design sustainable products and sell these at the summer camp marketplace.

Learn to innovate while having fun
The future needs you—your ideas, your courage, your imagination. Learn from Edison’s optimism and Tesla’s wisdom. Use your curiosity to guide you in finding alternative solutions. Get comfortable thinking out of the box. Remember, it often takes many trials and errors to reach that Eureka! moment. So don’t give up. Let’s work together to make the world a better place.
