Kids learn about energy via hands-on power grid
A new, one-of-a kind interactive power grid exhibit designed for children has opened in Raleigh. Kid Grid, located in Marbles Kids Museum, playfully introduces young children to electricity and power grid technology through hands-on play. Kids explore a pretend power grid and learn how to make smart energy choices.
Kid Grid features play versions of control systems, motors, towers and transformers, and promotes early learning in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Kid Grid was funded by a $1 million grant from ABB, a global leader in power technology, and opened in June.
Marbles provides learning experiences for children through innovative children’s exhibits, programs and events, and larger-than-life IMAX movies on North Carolina’s only giant screen. (919) 834-4040; MarblesKidsMuseum.org or IMAXRaleigh.org
