Getting the Facts About Electricity

Safety Presentations

The Electric Junction presentation teaches elementary students about electricity and how to be safe around it. The educational materials also can be modified for older audiences, such as civic groups and senior citizen organizations.

In the 45-minute presentation, we will answer questions about:

  • How electricity works
  • How it came to rural areas and gets to homes and businesses
  • What can happen when people are not careful around electricity
  • How to be safe

During the presentation, Bluebonnet's employees also explain the co-op's participation in Rural Crime Watch, a community awareness program to help report and prevent crime. Children are taught that any time they see someone wearing Bluebonnet's logo, they can safely ask that person for help.
