Your family can visit the Canadian Energy Museum on select dates this winter to build fun projects and learn more about renewable energy technologies in Canada. Build an eye-catching windsock that teaches about wind energy, or discover the world of solar energy as you build a functional solar rover! Choose either, or both projects, for a fun morning of learning and creating together with the kids.
The Canadian Energy Museum is dedicated to providing information about Canada’s ever-evolving energy sector. It is home to the original Leduc #1 – the world’s largest drill bit – and several other artifacts and exhibits that serve to educate about our oil sands, pipeline safety or renewable energy trends. It is located in Leduc County, just south of the town of Devon.
