The Lincoln Children’s Museum instills a love of learning for children of all ages through the lens of discovery and play.

Electricity in Action

⚡️ SATURDAY, MAY 11 – See electricity in action with our friends from Lincoln Electric System (LES)! ⚡️
From 9am – 1pm, LES will have their high-voltage trailer on-site for kiddos and their families to learn about the importance of safety with a demonstration by LES line technicians using REAL power to teach electricity basics and safety.
Children can…
💡 Discuss how electricity is generated and distributed.
💡See how electricity always seeks a path to the ground.
💡Even see a hot dog fry on a live power line!
This activity is free for members and included with regular and Museums for All admission!
