Light it Up

"Light it up" is the perfect program to introduce your students to electricity. We’ll explore the difference between watts, amps and volts, play the battery game, and challenge teams to make the longest working strand of lights.

Book your program at 4 p.m. in December and drive through the Galaxy of Lights as you exit!
