Electricity School

The 2020 Electricity School has been cancelled due to social distancing orders. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

Electricity School is held annually in June at Bailey Park in Camp Point. The event is open to all youth, ages 8-18 (not just 4-H members). Activities include a game with prizes, a safety demonstration, and several workshops. First year students make an extension cord to take home. Second year students make a soda can lamp. Third year students will learn basic house wiring skills in our circuits/switches class. Fourth year students will visit our Randy D. Rigg Memorial Wind Turbine. Fifth year students will visit Adams Electric and learn about our mapping system and how we track outages.

There is no charge for the event but students must pre-register by completing an application and health form to be eligible. Watch for details in 2021! 

If you’d like to add your son, daughter or grandchild’s name to a future mailing list, contact the Communications Department or call (800) 232-4797
