"Hands-On Exhibits "

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.
