FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASSENA—The New York Power Authority has developed a
“Basics of Electricity Program” to be presented to local schools. The
program, targeted for the 4th grade level, will teach students how
electricity is generated and cover concepts such as the atom, static
electricity, and current electricity. In addition, a slide show on the St.
Lawrence-FDR Power Project will be included. Equipment such as magnets,
coils of wire, galvanometers, a hand-crank generator and a Van de Graff
generator, which will provide a hair-raising experience for the students,
