What is electricity? Why do some condors avoid landing on power poles?
These are just two of the questions in “It’s not Trivial,” a fun and educational game on Avista’s website. This site has resources for kids, teachers and parents to help kids learn more about electrical and natural gas safety.
If you are a teacher, you can download lessons for kids in grades three through 8, and even get the lessons in Spanish if you need it. The next e-SMART program for teachers starts in fall of 2022.
If you are a parent, you can learn about calling 811 before you dig, plus learn how you and your kids can conduct your own home inspections to make sure you are practicing both electrical and natural gas safety.
If you are a kid and have questions about electricity or natural gas, you can ask an expert to get answers. You can also play games, watch videos and even conduct experiments. Just make sure you have an adult around to supervise.
The holidays are just around the corner and the kids will be home from school: it might be a good time to check out this site.
Lisa, an Avista customer, bought her 1910 house because she loved the old-world character, some of which doesn’t make her house very energy efficient. Lisa is sharing her experience on taking some simple do-it-yourself improvements to inspire others to do the same. You’ll find her stories right here every Tuesday morning.
