Virtual Field Trips

Energy 101
Energy 101 VideoYou use energy every day to power video games and to turn on the lights, but have you ever wondered how energy gets to your home?

Take this virtual field trip and learn what happens before you plug and play or flip the light switch on. Travel hundreds of miles away to the power plant and gas refinery where energy is created. Follow along as energy travels through electric lines and natural gas pipelines all the way to your house.

Along the way, you will learn the difference between renewable and non-renewable resources, and why it’s important to use energy wisely.
