By Special to the Monitor

Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Bradbury Science Museum Science on Wheels educational program is offering new, renewable energy-related workshops during the 2010-11 school year.
The classes are designed to generate interest in science and renewable energy by students at schools throughout Northern New Mexico.
Beginning in October, the museum’s science educators will offer four Science on Wheels workshops on Energy Explorations, Solar Energy, Wind Energy and Fuel Cells.
They are geared toward students in fourth through eighth grades, are hands-on and engaging, and give kids more exposure to and understanding of types of renewable energy.
The classes are not only timely, but also reflect some of the research done at LANL.
Science on Wheels’ first school visit this fall will be on Oct. 4 at Peñasco.
The main goals of Science on Wheels are to interest children in science, help develop the critical thinking skills necessary for scientific research, and inspire them to engage in their education.
“It’s important for kids to see themselves as scientists,” said Gordon McDonough, science educator at the Bradbury Science Museum.
“If they can imagine it, it seems more possible.”
