Energy for the Common Good


Lowell, MA
United States

Energy for the Common Good (ECG) is an NGO that creates public engagement for fusion energy so that leaders in local communities, energy, environmental regulation, and policy are ready to implement fusion energy along with all other safe non-carbon energy innovations as soon as they are available.

One of the ways that we create public engagement is through our K-12 introduction to fusion STEM education enrichment program, Generation Fusion.

For Fusion Energy Week, we are partnering with Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian and MIT Plasma Science & Fusion Center to facilitate activities through our Generation Fusion Program in Lowell Public Schools. We will be running a space activity to demonstrate how fusion powers the sun and stars, as well as a magnet activity to demonstrate how we can create fusion on Earth.

These are closed events, taking place on May 7 and May 9 from 3-5pm. Make sure to check back for pictures to see how they went!

Check out the other events happening this week from our FEW Boston Subcommittee (Energy for the Common Good, MIT Plasma Science & Fusion Center, Commonwealth Fusion Systems, and Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian)!
