Renewable Energy Lab


Learn about the importance of renewable energy in protecting our planet. Participants will have guided exploration of the traveling exhibit Under the Arctic: Digging into Permafrost while it is at the GRPM for a limited time. Laboratory connections will introduce solar panels, wind turbines and alternative energy powered cars. This equipment gives students the opportunity to learn about renewable energy technologies in a tangible, real-life way.

STEAM Labs will be offered for 6th-8th graders on Tuesdays from 4 – 5:30 p.m. These engaging laboratories will build confidence in students’ science abilities, gaining hands-on experience in conducting experiments, designing inventions and exploring careers in STEM fields.


When purchasing, you will select the number of sessions you are interested in for your student(s). Once purchased, the GRPM will reach out to you for specific registration in classes, and with link to the medical and photography release form. Class offerings will be updated if sessions sell out.

Purchase all 6 sessions to receive a 10% discount!

COVID Precautionary Measures 

Various safety measures will be in place to ensure a low-risk environment for learners and educators. Prior to entering the Museum, students will complete a brief health-screening at drop-off. Due to capacity limits, classes will be limited to eight students, and parents will not be able to participate in programming.  Face masks will be required during class sessions. GRPM educators will also complete a health screening before each session, prior to arrival.
