New “do-at-home” experiments offer students learning-fun this summer and beyond
ATLANTA – July 20, 2021 – Georgia Power’s Learning Power team continues to support summer learning and STEM enrichment for students by rolling out new “experiment” videos. The experiments cover a variety of STEM and energy efficiency topics with hands-on activities requiring only a few basic supplies, most of which can be found around the house. Learning Power’s video library will contain a total of 12 engaging videos, including two Spanish versions.
“At Georgia Power, we want students to be inquisitive about the world they live in and develop a love for learning beyond the classroom,” said Education Manager Lisa Olens. “With this new roll-out, we have added a bit of humor and creativity to our experiment videos and are excited for students to begin using them this summer.”
In the videos, Georgia Power education coordinators and their new sidekicks, Henry and Enrique, engage students as they explore STEM concepts.
Over the next month, the entire series of interactive videos will be released. To get started with these activities and to learn more about Georgia Power’s Learning Power program, visit www.LearningPower.org.
