Georgia Power's Learning Power Program Reaches 100,000 Students

ATLANTA, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power today announced that 100,000 students in Georgia have now been instructed through the company's Learning Power program. Learning Power is a statewide education initiative designed to bring energy education into classrooms. Eleven Georgia Power education coordinators work throughout the state teaching the Learning Power curriculum to elementary, middle, and high school students through in-class field trips at no cost to schools.

"We are extremely proud to have reached this important milestone in our program," said Michele Wagner, Georgia Power's director of energy efficiency. "This underscores our commitment to helping improve overall academic achievement for children in Georgia while providing information to help them and their families use energy wisely."

The Learning Power program focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. The company's goal is to improve academic achievement, help create well-informed future energy purchasers, and build awareness around careers in the electric utility industry.

Teachers throughout the state have been extremely receptive to the program, noting that it provides a needed break from the norm and exposure to resources and activities that aren't typically accessible in the classroom. In addition to offering in-class field trips, the company recently introduced an energy efficiency storybook, "Joining the Watt Squad." The book teaches younger students about energy efficiency and using energy more wisely.
