Southport & Edgecomb student enjoyed a presentation on Energy by Mad Science of Maine called “Ramp it Up”.

The presenter "Catalyst Cory" took the children on a high speed romp into energy and power.

2 lucky volunteers pedaled energy to power on the Mad Science Power Pedaler. They used the mechanical energy of a bicycle to power a spectacle of light..  Sparks flew when they witnessed a tesla coil light up the room! They converted chemical energy into heat in an explosive exothermic reaction.

The children enjoyed the presentation so much and hope they can do it again soon!
