MONTREAL, Feb. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - The Electrium, Hydro-Québec's
electricity interpretation centre, has a special lineup of activities planned
for the March break.
Build an electricity distribution network with Envirovolt
From March 2 to 6, 2009, in addition to the usual guided tours, check out
the Electrium's newest game: Envirovolt. Designed for children between 9 and
14 years of age, Envirovolt is both fun and educational. With the help of an
activity leader, players build an electricity distribution network while
following sustainable development principles of environmental conservation,
social progress and cost-effectiveness.
The Envirovolt workshops last about two hours and run from Monday to
Friday, starting at 10:00 a.m.
All day long, children and their families will discover electricity's
many aspects: its role in the human body, how electricity gets from the power
station to your home, the origin of lightning, the secrets of electric eels,
how the earth's magnetic field works and much more.
Younger children can enjoy a face-painting workshop, offered every day
from noon to 4:00 p.m.
Quizzes, draws and attendance prizes are also on the menu.
All activities are free.
