Fort Lauderdale, FL – South Florida residents are invited to cool off and beat the summer heat during Florida Power & Light Company’s “FPL Day” on September 1, 2018 at the Museum of Discovery and Science with interactive exhibits and engaging trivia experiences for the whole family.

Participate in fun activities in the FPL Storm Center. Visitors can test their skills at restoring power at the Power On! exhibit and learn about principles of electricity. Power On demonstrations will take place at 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. FPL experts will host two table talks, Energy Stick and Snap Circuits.

At the FPL Cooling Station, guests are invited to take a moment to “chill” out by walking into a larger-than-life ice cube that refreshes with music and a blast of liquid nitrogen, cooling guests 15-20 degrees, along with a fun video of their experience. The Cooling Station is the perfect way to recharge the family during a hot day in South Florida. It shows how customers can beat the heat this summer with FPL’s energy-saving tips and tools – including the mobile app and the Online Home Energy Survey – and turn themselves into energy experts by taking control of their energy usage and keeping their bill low.

Plus, don’t miss the FPL SolarNow™ experience to learn how we’re taking our state’s sunshine, turning it into clean solar energy and bringing it closer to you. Visitors can capture a fun moment with a nine-camera photo experience and receive a printed photo and “freeze-motion” video.
