Classroom Presentations: Sources of Energy

Requesting Classroom Presentations:

In order to keep our program cost-effective, we require that teachers schedule at least two presentations at one school for the same day. This is best accomplished by either scheduling the same presentation for more than one classroom; or by scheduling more than one presentation for the same classroom. We also require that presentation times be as close together during the day as possible.

The Journey of Hydropower in the Pacific Northwest
Grades: 4-5 (60 minutes)

Follow-up Guide

“I love that you included hands-on experiments that make sense. At first, I thought that the PUD was just going to be the same old science, but instead it was fun and exciting.”
