The Energy Show

Maria demonstrating stored energy

For the second visit, the Energy Outreach team go into each school to perform the Energy Show. It is a 45 minute show which was created especially for the project, and for Year 7 students in particular.

Each show is performed to the whole of Year 7 in every school.

This interactive show covers three main areas:

  • Where does energy come from?
  • How do we use energy?
  • What is energy?

These messages are all delivered in a visual and dynamic way using exciting demonstrations such as explosions, bouncy balls, fireworks and a Barbie rocket.
