Learning about energy can be fun!
You may not think much about it, but you use energy every day. Whether it's flipping on a light switch, opening the refrigerator, adjusting the thermostat to warm your home or simply turning on the television, you probably aren't giving much thought to the energy that's being used or where it came from. Did you ever wonder where natural gas comes from or about how to be safe around electricity? If so, we want to help you learn the answers to these questions and more.
Both electricity and natural gas - two of the most popular forms of energy - are safe if used properly. They can make our lives more comfortable. But, they are extremely powerful (in more ways than one) and can be dangerous when people are careless or don't pay attention. We want to help you play it safe around energy so you can protect yourself and your family.
Kids Connection offers interactive games, experiments and activities that provide valuable information about electricity and natural gas safety. But, there's also information about the science and history of natural gas and electricity so you can learn more about where energy got its start.
And there's a Teacher's Lounge so your teacher and other adults can access information to use in the classroom or other educational settings.
