Solar Energy is part of our regular educational programs, presented by Con Edison, that traces the history of power from colonial times to present. The advent of electricity in the late 19th century has paved the way for the age of technology. Students are introduced to various aspects in the scientific field including: The Industrial Revolution, Hydro Power, Solar Power, Wind Power, Electric Energy, and Satellite/GPS Systems.
