Earth Hour at the Ontario Science Centre

March 2010, Toronto

Pictured above: Anna on the "Human Powered Light Exhibit" (left) and Jason on the "Human Powered Light Exhibit" (right).

"Earth Hour at the Ontario Scienc Centre may have been without lights for an hour, but the "Human Powered Light Exhibit", along with a demonstration on "Wireless Electricity" helped to energize the crowd. The evening was a human powered success and if you missed it you'll have to wait until next year."
