Hands-on learning at The Discovery just got even more powerful thanks to Energy/Energía, our newest exhibition.
This brand new, 1,800 square foot, bilingual exhibition included more than 20 hands-on exhibits focused on energy generation, use, and storage. By featuring energy innovation happening right here in Northern Nevada, museum visitors have the opportunity to explore foundational energy concepts, learn what it takes to solve energy challenges, and leave inspired to discover more.
Energy/Energía showcases how much we know about energy, and the potential to shape our future energy economy through science and technology. Visitors will learn about innovators in sustainable energy, and how they approach “impossible problems” in their work. By showcasing innovation happening in Northern Nevada, like that of Tesla, The Discovery’s visitors will explore foundational energy concepts, learn what it takes to solve BIG problems, and leave inspired to be part of emerging solutions.
La exposición Energy/Energía se presenta en inglés y español.
The Energy/Energía exhibition was made possible by a generous grant from Tesla via the NDOE K-12 Education Fund.
