Students across Pennsylvania are getting a “charge” out of our electrical safety theater program!
They’re laughing, repeating electrical safety tips and learning valuable lessons about how to stay safe near electricity.
It’s the sixth year that we’ve partnered with The National Theatre for Children to offer this program to schools in our territory. There’s no fee for the schools to participate; the only requirement is a crowd of young minds eager to learn about electricity!
During March, we’re sharing these lessons at more than two dozen schools with performances of “Agents of Safety.” Nearly 10,000 children from Scranton to Allentown and Harrisburg to Williamsport will see the performance this month. The show teaches students how electricity is made, the uses of electricity and helps them identify dangerous electrical situations. Teachers are also given materials on electrical safety to share with their students prior to the performances.
By the time the final show takes place in the Mechanicsville area on March 20th, PPL will have shared the safety program with more than 90,000 students since 2015! That’s a lot of kids increasing their electrical safety IQ.
