Energy Encounter kicks off 2006 Family Sunday Series with “Storm Science”
HUTCHINSON ISLAND, Fla. -- The sixth season of Florida Power & Light Company's popular “Family Sunday” series kicks off Sunday, January 22. The premier showing of Robert Krampf’s educational program “Storm Science” will be presented at the FPL Energy Encounter on South Hutchinson Island. The event is free and takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Robert Krampf has been thrilling adults and children alike with his dazzling shows that teach audiences about the history and uses of electricity. This year’s program “Storm Science” is filled with exciting demonstrations, useful information and fun facts about storms. Krampf will produce a 7-foot-tall tornado, use million-volt sparks to show how lightning rods work, and answer the age-old question of whether lightning comes down from the clouds or up from the ground. Whether you love storms or are terrified of them, this is a show you’ll want to see.
In addition, FPL will open to the public its “College of Turtle Knowledge” and offer self-guided tours of the Energy Encounter, which features 30 hands-on displays on energy, electricity, nuclear power and the environment. The center is designed for all ages.
