You think homework is pressure? Just wait until you learn how the weight of the earth’s atmosphere pushes down on you with the force of an elephant! Explore how Bernoulli’s principle creates enough lift to make a jumbo jet fly or how air pressure can be used to launch a hot air balloon. Watch in amazement as our vortex generator creates giant smoke rings. Want even more pressure? Take a ride on our amazing Mad Science Hovercraft! Mad Science shows are fun and educational and this program will leave you flying high!

Are you interested in solar power but didn’t think you could take advantage of it? Come learn about a proposed community solar project to provide electricity for people and businesses in our area of Maine. Don McLean will present an overview of this project, sponsored by The Center for Ecology Based Economy in Norway, Maine, to be shared among interested households and businesses. By sharing the costs, we can provide electricity powered by the sun at a price competitive with Central Maine Power’s standard offer. We are looking for interested people to propel this idea into reality. Potential subscribers, site owners and businesses are invited to attend. Come join us to find out more about using renewable resources to supply your electricity needs.
