Lighthouse Nano Spot

Visit the Lighthouse at the Maritime Explorium to explore circuits.  Here you can construct a working circuit and turn on the lights.  Engineer a switch to turn your light on and off and test objects to determine if they are conductors or insulators.

The Lighthouse is also a “Nano Spot” where you can explore how nanotechnologies are solving the challenges of energy efficiency on board ships and on land.  Visit the Maritime Explorium’s interactive “Nano Spot” to learn about how energy consumption is decreased using light-emitting diodes and how carbon nanotubes can increase energy efficiency and energy storage.
