Vectren Energy Delivery and the National Energy Foundation will bring Energy Safe Kids, an interactive, hands-on safety education program, to area schools for the sixth year, including programs in Bartholomew County this week.
Based on fourth-grade curriculum, the program educates children about natural gas safety through classroom presentations and take-home energy safety booklets. Energy Safe Kids presentations will be at the following schools:
Participating students will learn about the basics of natural gas and will be encouraged to follow safety precautions at home and school. Each participating classroom will receive teaching materials that include a teacher guide, accompanying compact disc and energy instructional posters.
This fall, Vectren and NEF will provide materials to about 180 classroom presentations, reaching more than 10,000 students in nearly 150 schools.
“While Energy Safe Kids covers serious safety issues, we present this information in a fun, memorable way,” said Mike Roeder, vice president of government affairs and president of Vectren North. “After all of the presentations are complete, we invite the teachers and students to participate in a video contest using what they learn from the safety education program to teach other kids to be energy safe.”
