Professionals in the Classroom
At the teacher's request, a Santee Electric Cooperative representative will visit students in the classroom for a fun and informative presentation that helps students respect and value the role electricity plays in their lives. Because we believe that understanding electricity is the first step toward using electricity responsibly, we're eager to help students in our service area gain that understanding as soon as possible.
To find out more about these free in-school presentations or to schedule a presentation for your classroom, please contact us.
Would you like to see a live electric demonstration in your classroom? If so, tell your teacher to contact Santee Electric Co-op to schedule a "Safety City" demonstration for you and your classmates. You'll have an electrifying time!
