PORTLAND – OMSI is set to open its brand new renewable energy exhibit where visitors can get a hands-on experience with some cutting-edge power sources.

Visitors can learn all about wind power by using actual wind to see how different shapes of turbines generate power.

Other interactive displays teach visitors about wave energy with a hands-on buoy.

There is also a simulated control room where it's up to you to make sure Portland residents get the power they need.

The exhibit officially opens in January and will be located in the newly transformed Earth Hall.
