At PEC, supporting our youngest members through educational outreach and programming is one big way we show our commitment to the communities we serve. That’s why we’ve created EmpowerU — a series of electricity-focused educational programming that is free to parents, students, and educators.
Recommended for third through sixth grades
We’ve put together a complete lesson plan that teaches elementary school students the components of electric circuits and how they function. Download these materials, which include a PowerPoint presentation, videos, and worksheets for your lesson.
Meet a lineworker
Recommended for third through eighth grades
It’s never too early to start dreaming about serving your community — and working with a big, cool truck! — for a job when you grow up. That’s why EmpowerU includes this lesson introducing our future leaders to the important job lineworkers do for our members.

Your first through fifth grade students will have fun learning about electric safety with PEC’s energy adventure activity book, which includes a scavenger hunt, word search, and more.
