Power UP! Program

Online educational games offer a powerful approach to learning basic concepts and information. Power UP! is a highly imaginative and unique learning tool geared towards kids 6-12 years old. The goal is to learn the basic components of an electrical circuit and how they fit together. Players will become armed with the knowledge of where electricity supports their daily lives and how the lack of these circuits could impact them. Players must carefully and strategically combine the resources given in a creative way in order to make the electrical current flow from one source to another. Learn about circuits, power sources, switches and many more interesting electrical topics. In addition to the Power UP! game for kids, there is also content for facilitators, and resources to learn more about how to become an electrician. For more information, contact
