Located at our McGuire Nuclear Station, Duke Energy’s EnergyExplorium offers educational and fun activities for everyone interested in learning more about electricity generation and Lake Norman.
Visitors can: * Take a virtual tour of McGuire Nuclear Station, *Play interactive games and learn to use energy wisely, * Convert their own energy into enough electricity to power a television, * Watch a movie about Lake Norman and the community, * Walk a mile-long nature trail along the shore of Lake Norman and explore the wonders of the Piedmont’s environment.
The explorium presents hands-on exhibits where you can throw the switches on model nuclear and coal-fired plants. You can power a television by converting your body’s energy on a treadmill, play computer games, and figure out how much energy you get for a dollar. You can also burn off some energy on a mile long nature trail.
