The Carnegie Science Center recently selected ToyLab’s Volta Racer to help teach kids about renewable energy and STEM topics. Carnegie has integrated the Volta Racer into live demonstrations during their Energy Show (a live theater presentation all about energy education), and within the museum’s Energy Zone NETL exhibits. Visitors interact with the exhibit pushing buttons in sequence to illuminate banks of lights to propel the Volta Racers down the tracks. This hands-on STEM learning activity helps kids understand how solar energy is used to power vehicles.
The Carnegie Science Center received the 2003 National Award for Museum Service – the Center inspires and entertains by connecting science and technology with everyday life. In addition to providing valuable scientific experiences, Carnegie Science Center engages in outreach programs that serve Pittsburgh’s divers community.
