The Story Behind The Switch
Every three years, Dakota Valley Electric Cooperative and Basin Electric team up to provide area schools and Hutterite Colonies with a lyceum entitled - The Story Behind the Switch'. This program is offered to students in grades 4 through 6.
The lyceum emphasizes safety and respect for electricity. It also discusses what electricity is, how it is generated and distributed, and the important role it plays in our lifestyles.
During the program, students are allowed to participate in electrical demonstrations such as the Van de Graff generator, which is sure to make your hair stand on end! This demonstration is a big hit with students and demonstrates how electricity travels on the outside of conductors.
