This free educational event is designed to teach the basics of electricity and how it is generated at Bonneville Lock and Dam. It is geared toward elementary and middle school students, but informative and fun for the entire family.
Visitors will learn how different forms of energy work through hands-on activities and films, and can take a tour inside Bonneville’s Powerhouse 2. Tours will be offered every 15 minutes, and will be limited to 25 people per tour. Families and groups will register when they arrive and sign up for a tour time. If your group is 10 people or more, please call 541-374-8820 to pre-register.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 10am – 3pm at the Washington Shore Visitor Center. Participants can visit all of the stations and go on a tour in about 1.5 – 2 hours. Stamp your Great Electrifying Event Passport at each station to earn a prize!
