For parents looking for new ways to help keep children learning while outside of the classroom this summer, Georgia Power’s education team has created a series of interactive videos that allow students to discover science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through activities at home.

The videos cover a variety of STEM energy topics with hands-on activities requiring only a few basic supplies, most of which can be found around the house. 

“These videos are another way to engage students at home to explore STEM concepts,” said Lisa Olens, Georgia Power education manager.

“The activities are designed to help make it exciting and fun for students to learn about the transformation of energy by building a balloon rocket or learn about solar energy by making s’mores in a simple sun-powered oven," Olens said. "There are many other topics, and we hope students, parents and educators will find these videos helpful as they look for fun educational activities that can be done from home.”

The programs, lesson plans and activities are provided at no cost to teachers or schools.
