A rendering of the new Energy exhibit at the Denver Children’s Museum illustrates the power and playfulness of energy in many forms.
A whoopee cushion wall. Rocket launches. A solar symphony. All of this and more is coming soon to Energy, a new exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Denver that Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. (“Encana”) is supporting with a $1 million grant allocated over the next five years.
The interactive exhibit is slated to open later this year and designed to engage and teach families about everyday energy use.
“Everything in Energy is kid-powered. Our goal is to strengthen children’s science and engineering skills by giving them the opportunity to investigate, discover and ultimately work together to uncover different ways to power amazing things. Kids will be challenged to communicate and reflect on their energy choices, just like adults,” says Mike Yankovich, President and CEO of the Children’s Museum of Denver.
Encana is a long-time supporter of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) based educational programs across our operating areas in the US and Canada, like this Denver Girls and Science event. The new exhibit at the Children’s Museum embraces STEM concepts in a hands-on, one-of-a-kind experience.
The Children’s Museum of Denver serves families living along the Front Range of Colorado. Encana’s operating communities in Colorado include the DJ Basin and Piceance with our US operations based in Denver.
