Energy Sock Puppets


What would the various energy types say if they were in front of you? Maybe it would be something like this. This video is not the best, but it was an interesting way of presenting the information.

The show was presented at Solarfest 2008 in the Youth Track. Kids were receptive to it, and had a lot of good insight as to the types of renewable energies and how they fit into the big picture. The show was fun. Afterwards, the facilitators passed out hand cranks to show how you can make your own electricity, and answered questions. They compared three types of light bulbs, Incandescent, compact Flourescent (CFL) and Light Emitting Diodes (LED). Apparently there is a lot of promise in LEDs because of their greatly increased use of energy efficiency.
