Sheckler students learn electricity dangers, safety

Third- and fourth-grade Sheckler Elementary School students were fortunate to experience a special presentation of space station safety, performed by the National Theater for Children and sponsored by PPL, Feb. 28. The program focused on electrical safety.

The four safety points students were made aware of are what electricity is and how electricity is made, the uses of electricity, identifying dangerous electrical situations and how to stay safe around electricity.

This vignette has fun characters on a pretend space station learning how to use and stay safe with electricity. Interactive at times, this program engages children with lively characters, bright colors and a serious message.

The NTC launched in 1978, providing shows for more than 30 million students. Its mission is to teach, entertain and inspire students to make a positive difference in their communities. Professional performers Susan Leist and Carrie Greenberg travel with NTC, performing in various schools for a four-week tour, seeing 38 different schools nationally.
