We've included content standards-based experiments and information, plus worksheets for each section to help you assess students' understanding of key science and safety concepts.

Electrical Safety World uses information, experiments, games, and activities to teach students the principles of electricity and the practices of electrical safety.

This site is geared for a range of interests and reading levels and can be used by students in elementary and middle school. (Students can click on highlighted vocabulary words to access pop-up definitions.) Nonreaders will need adult assistance to play the games.

Other helpful features include Tell Me More, a section for students doing reports and research; a Safety Certificate that students can use to track their progress through the site; a handy Glossary; and a page of Links to related energy websites.
