Energy Express is a summer event for kids and families to learn about energy usage. As a partnership between the Department of Environmental Protection and Montgomery County Public Libraries, these presentations will take place across the County’s libraries as part of the Summer Reading Program.
And for the first time since 2019, Energy Express presentations are happening IN PERSON!
Set sail on a treasure hunt towards energy savings with this year’s Summer Reading theme, “Oceans of Possibilities.” On board, our young crewmates will explore different energy sources and make smart decisions to power our ship (and our homes). Our adventure will be led by high school students from the P.O.W.E.R (Peer Outreach With Energy Resources) program who have worked all year to prepare this interactive energy story.
P.O.W.E.R, now in its 4th year, is a collaborative program between the Department of Environmental Protection and Audubon Naturalist Society. Through the program, MCPS high school students learn about energy sources, conservation, and efficiency and practice public speaking and storytelling to engage our community. In other words: the ship is in good hands.
So join us in an hour engulfed in energy! Participants will learn about energy sources, electrical appliances, efficiency and conservation, and exciting renewable solutions—and may even be able to take home some treasure of their own.
