Future Energy Chicago
Oops! This event is over.Click here to see today's calendar
Guests get a fresh and dynamic look at our energy choices and steps we can take to create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy future. Activities include: Ride a bike and convert mechanical energy into electrical energy; crank a hand generator and activate an array of "plasma trees"; feel the difference in energy demand among a range of light bulbs. The keystone is the Future Energy Chicago simulation, where guests compete in teams, and rotate through five games in which players design an energy efficient future car and house, improve tomorrow's neighborhood, and reinvent Chicago's transportation and power generation systems.
