PGE and Mad Science present On the Grid, a fun, interactive presentation about energy supply and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers associated with future energy needs. This high-energy show will spark the imagination and curiosity of audience participants as they learn about science and innovation, and how it affects their world. "On the Grid" is a 30-minute presentation designed to inspire students and citizens to take charge of the future! After a glimpse at the evolution of the electrical infrastructure known as "the Grid," we show them how science is already integrating new technologies to create a "Smart Grid!" This solid foundation of facts mixed with fun will let their imaginations take the ideas of today to build the reality of the future.
Mad Science is on a mission to spark the imagination and curiosity of children by providing them with fun, interactive, and educational programs that instill a clear understanding of what science is, and how it affects their world. We do this through after school programs, on-site field trips, educational assemblies, summer camps, and birthday parties.
