South River EMC wants to visit your school to teach students the
fundamentals of electrical safety and energy efficiency. We have two
school programs, which are geared toward energy education.
The Misadventures of Lightnin’ Liz and Neon Leon
High Voltage Demonstration
The 30-minute high voltage demonstration teaches students about
electricity and safety as it follows the adventures of Neon Leon and
Lightnin’Liz. Leon and Liz are not very smart when it comes to
electricity and often find themselves in dangerous situations. These
glass figures are used to demonstrate the importance of electrical
safety. Students will watch as Leon and Liz experience different
problems such as improper use of metal ladders, flying kites too close
to power lines, farm safety mishaps and why to avoid downed power
lines. At the end students can expect a big surprise! To schedule a
time for Lightnin’ Liz and Neon Liz to visit your school contact Robby
Talton at (910)892-8071 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Do You Know About Energy Efficiency?
A lot with help from CFL Charlie!
(Elementary- middle grades)
This 30-minute program ranges from where electricity originates
(beyond the light switch) to big energy users (heating and cooling
systems). Also, students will look at ways to help save our natural
resources through energy efficiency, while saving their parents’ money!
This interactive learning experience gets the students involved by
making learning about electricity more like a game show than a pop
quiz. Students will also receive their own kit on energy efficiency.
The kit includes an energy-saving checklist, an activity booklet, a
folder and a super energy saver light switch cover. Armed with the
knowledge of how to be energy savers, the students can navigate their
and identify ways to be more energy efficient. If they complete their
homework, they'll get a certificate signed by CFL Charlie! To schedule a
time for us to bring energy to your classroom, contact Julie Wahl at
