Explore energy transformations with electricity, sound, and light! Energy is everywhere, as these exciting, fun and interactive demonstrations will show.

Electricity, light, sound – we are surrounded by these forms of energy every day!

Discover the science behind energy transformations while taking part in fascinating demonstrations which reinforce concepts introduced in ConocoPhillips Science On Stage: Exploring Energy.

This presentation investigates types of energy, how they are produced, and how they affect matter, covering key TEKS science objectives in a fun way.

See how an electrical circuit works, learn how instruments produce different pitches, and find out how glow sticks make light – all in one presentation!
