Carroll EMC Offers Complimentary Programs for Local Schools
Your electric cooperative is committed to partnering with area schools and teachers to provide free programming and presentations to enhance student learning. If you would like to schedule a demonstration, invite a truck or schedule a speaker, contact Rolando Benitez at 770-830-5721 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For scheduling purposes and to organize volunteers, Carroll EMC requires a minimum two-week notice for any school event. Please also note, we can only schedule our Touch-a-Truck presentation Monday through Friday.
Big trucks and small children just naturally go together. Invite a Carroll EMC service truck to your next school event to give students an up-close look at some of the equipment used to keep the power flowing to their homes and school.
Electrical safety is a priority for Carroll EMC. As a community service, the co-op offers a table-top safety demonstration tailored for school children. The safety city program teaches children how to play it safe around electric power lines.
It takes a wide variety of people and skills to provide electricity and service to Carroll EMC’s Member-owners. Invite a Cooperative employee to your school’s career day to discuss the types of careers at Carroll EMC and the education needed for employment in various jobs.
High Voltage Demonstration
Carroll EMC’s high voltage demonstration is a memorable learning experience for children and adults of all ages. Using a life-sized, energized replica of a distribution power line, linemen demonstrate how they stay safe working with electricity and the potential outcomes of making contact.
Carroll EMC invites small groups to visit the cooperative headquarters and get an up-close look at our facility and operations. Visitors will have the chance to see our dispatch center, vehicle shop and warehouse as well as hear from our linemen on job safety. An electric vehicle presentation, high voltage demonstration and safety city demonstration can also be scheduled during the visit.
STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teachers can schedule a day at Carroll EMC for students to learn about energy education. Curriculum and activities are based on Green Power EMC’s SPARK program.
