Hey, kids, wanna do some hands-on experiments with electricity?

You can, at a brand new (totally safe) exhibit at the DuPage Children’s Museum. It’s part of AWEsome Energy — a major initiative to help kids understand how Air, Water and Electricity help power our world.

It’s a big topic for young minds. But watch this video, and you’ll see that children are not intimidated at all. They are eager make connections on circuit boards and light up the exhibit.

AWEsome Energy promises to ignite the interests of our communities youngest innovators. We can’t wait to see what the museum — and the kids — come up with next.
