The 35-minute livestream event presents a virtual lesson on energy efficiency for students in grades 3-5. A live host will introduce entertaining skits featuring a variety of characters and scenes that help classes discuss energy use.

Students and teachers will also have access to a Q&A with the host, plus an exclusive e-learning package that includes games, quizzes, e-books and lesson plans for the classroom.
