The year is 2040. How will we get around?
Where will the power come from?
Its up to YOU to plan and shape the future!
In the Traction Labs exhibit, you can explore the issues of energy and transportation in the 21st century.
Hands on activities include:
- What Can you Power?
- How Do Electric Trains Work?
- Trains vs. Cars.
A highlight of the exhibit is the full-detailed interactive HO-scale train layout. Use renewable energy to power two different electric railways! Other layout details include the town ballpark (where the A’s are playing the Giants), a high-speed electric train, a compact city-center, rolling green hills, dogs frolicking, and much more! See if you can find Snoopy driving a tow truck, the Mayor negotiating with a tough customer, a traffic jam, the solar array, Reuben’s sandwich shop, and the electrical substation.
