The younger children learn 15-20 safety and conservation messages through a safety puppet called 'Wires".

The older students learn about a variety of electrical hazards including what to do if they are in a car accident involving a utility pole and power line.

They learn about different types of energy and energy consumption. An electrical shock was demonstrated with a dill pickle and 120 volts.
