Electric Education for All Ages
St. Croix Electric Cooperative partners with local schools to teach about electricity. Third graders throughout our service area can learn about how electricty is generated and distributed, about the importance of conservation and about safety through classroom presentations. SCEC also has an employee and lineman available to participate as Mystery Readers at local elementary schools.
Our Safety Town demonstration is modeled after a small town. The tabletop demonstration includes a home, substation, lake, people and moving vehicles; it is electrically wired so we can simulate dangerous situations with sparks, arcs and pops. The interactive program is engaging to viewers of all ages, from pre-school through adult. Safety Town demonstrations are free and the display is portable, so St. Croix Electric staff can easily come to your club meeting, classroom or office. Demonstrations last about one hour.
In the meantime, excellent online activities are available for youth of all ages. Check out these informative and fun sites:
