In our presentation we want to tell you something about the Energeticon. Let's go!
The Energeticon is located at 7 Konrad-Adenauer-Allee in Alsdorf. When we got there we had a guided tour around and heard a lot about the Alsdorf coal pit and the mineworkers. The Energeticon is a big building. But it's not only big - it's also very old.
The mineworkers were very hard working. They went a thousand feet underground mining. They had some problems, for example when they were underground they could not go to the toliet. So they had to use a bucket.
At the end of our tour we built something like a flashlight to generate electricity. We did a quiz on that.
Today the Energeticon is used for tours and performances. Last week there was a comedy show on.
