Trico’s Classroom Connection program educates elementary school students on the value and importance of energy efficiency and teaches them ways they can save energy in their own home.
Trico conducts an age-appropriate learning session during classroom time to teach the students ways to conserve energy and how to choose energy efficient appliances. Students are shown basic energy savings measures as well as the benefits of saving energy. An Energy Savings Information Sheet and an Energy Savings Checklist are distributed to all students. The students are also provided with an energy savings survey to fill out with their parents. All students that fill out and return the survey receive a “prize” that promotes energy efficiency as a reminder to continue to conserve.
