At PEC, supporting our youngest members through educational programming is one big way we show our commitment to the communities we serve. Now, we’re excited to announce the first installment of EmpowerU — a series of electricity-focused educational programming we are making available for free to students, teachers, and parents.

Resources include an in-depth circuit builder lesson plan complete with videos, worksheets, and a PowerPoint for third through sixth grade students, as well an electric safety activity booklet for second through fifth graders and coloring sheets for younger learners.
