A perfect place to spread the word about electrical safety is to the youth of our community. Teaching electrical safety at a young age ensures those thoughts and concepts will remain with the children as they mature into adults. That is why EnerStar sponsors several youth programs.
4th Grade Safety Expo
Each year, area students attend EnerStar's 4th Grade Safety Day. The innovative event begins with a demonstration presented by Live Line Demo. This exciting show teaches children how electricity travels through wires, and what happens when a kite hits a power line or a truck backs into a utility pole. The Live Line display contains 7,200 volts of electricity and is constructed with the same poles, transformers, and line hardware used by EnerStar. With the use of props such as a fake squirrel, a hot dog, and a balloon making for a fun, but educational program.
EnerStar can provide your school or club with electricity-related literature, including activity booklets and coloring books. Materials available are suitable for pre-schools through high school. Contact EnerStar to check on availability. Three weeks' notice is suggested as some materials must be ordered.
