Partnering to educate the next generation
We partner with the Benton Conservation District to offer Salmon Power. Salmon Power was designed by staff at the Conservation District and is targeted towards fourth grade classrooms that participate in their salmon program. Salmon Power focuses on the role our dams play in providing hydropower and supporting fish migration.
The Energy Experience
Local utilities partner with other community organizations to provide a STEM-focused energy and environmental summit targeted towards seventh and eighth grade students. The Energy Experience was designed by to create awareness and understanding of energy resources, safety and public power. The primary focus is hydropower, nuclear, wind, solar, natural gas and energy efficiency as well as the benefits and challenges of each. The Energy Experience is offered biannually. The next event is scheduled for Fall of 2017.
