Energy harvesting playground, turns kid power into electrical power

RePlayMyPlay is an energy-harvesting play exhibit at the Carnegie Science Center that converts the mechanical energy from the motion of children’s play into electric power.

The goal of ReplayMyPlay is to engage the community in a collaborative effort to teach young children about how they can make an impact and promote sustainability.

ReplayMyPlay includes a series of workshops that inform the community of project developments and teach children about fundamental concepts of energy conservation and renewal. The project’s host is the Carnegie Science Center. The targeted audience is young children (both in the school and throughout the community) who can use the structure either alone, or with the aid of a caregiver.
