Come join us for a day of hands-on science, festivities, and prizes! How do plants store energy from the sun? Can you get power from mud? How much energy is in a bag of potato chips? Learn all about the science of energy at the annual Yale Pathways West Campus Festival. Build wind turbines and solar panels, make your own batteries and food, and much more! You’ll see many different places where science can happen - from chemistry labs to the Landscape Lab. Remember to dress comfortably – we’ll be examining energy both inside and outside! Closed-toe shoes and long pants required for labs. Registration required. Lunch is included.
