Wiess Energy Hall PowerPlayz

Do you know about hydrogen? To get power from hydrogen, we mix it up with oxygen.

And nuclear fission? It’s an engineering wonder with a big safety factor to make atoms go asunder.

How about renewable energy? It’s doable!

From learning about oil, natural gas, electricity, conservation and much more – PowerPlayz teaches you the highlights about all things energy. Not only that – as a MemberYOU are the FIRST to see these catchy, engaging and educational videos!

As HMNS completely renovates the Wiess Energy Hall (opening Fall 2017), we are starting some sneak peeks for our Members. We will be releasing our brand-new energy videos only to you. Check them out, sing along and most importantly, learn from them. And get excited about seeing the hall when it opens next year!

PowerPlayz: Songs About Energy – Unconventional Hydrocarbons from HMNS on Vimeo.

Experiencing science firsthand gives kids an opportunity like no other to own their future. From dazzling dinosaurs to shimmering stars, glowing gems to electrifying energy, HMNS helps kids of all ages to experience science and gain knowledge – not just for a test but for life.

The renovation of the Wiess Energy Hall is a $40 million project. We hope you enjoyed the video (the first of ten!) and we hope that you will consider making a donation towards the new hall. Any amount is valued tremendously. Click here to make a donation today.
