KGMB is happy to lend a variety of materials to local educators. Materials may be checked out in 2 week increments. Please contact our Education Coordinator for information about reserving any of these items.
Pedal Power Energy Bike
The Pedal Power is a tool that you can use in your classroom to teach about energy production, use, and conservation. Students ride a stationary bike to power a generator, which in turn powers incandescent light bulbs, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), and a hair dryer. This activity will teach students how much energy it takes to power these common electrical conveniences we use everyday and how important it is to turn them off when not in use (or not use them at all). KEEP (Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program) has generously made this Pedal Power available for KGMB to lend. To reserve, click here. Learn more about the Pedal Power here.
