Solar Day at WOW Science Museum


S-IMG_4245by Keith Colgan

A quick trip up the downtown parking lot elevator on Saturday delivered my grandson Ethan and me to a roof top of fascinating demonstrations of solar energy courtesy of Lodi’s World of Wonders Science Museum.  No electric plugs or cords could be seen at this location because everyone was “off the grid” making important things happen with nothing but sun light.

While some enthusiasts were converting dirty water into drinkable water, others were cooking hot dogs, popping corn, driving vehicles, enjoying water-feature displays, and creating works of art with solar flame throwers.  Members of the Stockton Astronomical Society spoke of nebula’s and proton ejections while offering real-time looks at sun spots and flares through solar telescopes.

On our way out, we enjoyed a demonstration of hydrophobic hydrocarbons …  or what can be done with a hoop and a tank of soapy water.

Thanks to WOW for a better understanding of our world.
