Would you like a Jackson EMC employee to visit your school? We have educational programming for all levels, from elementary to high school. Read the options below, then click on our School Visit Request Form and indicate your preference.
Power Town™ is a 24” x 48” table-top model of a mini-town with common electrical situations and hazards geared for elementary-aged students. We can bring the model to your classroom, or you can watch the video. Click here to watch the video.
The Safety Trailer Power Line Demonstration is a big hit with elementary age students, especially when we fry a hot dog on a power line. This interactive demo allows students to practice closing switches while wearing safety equipment.
Bucket Truck demonstrations include a visual presentation with a lineman.
In-class speakers can address topics such as electrical safety, energy efficiency, the path of electricity and power restoration. Also, we have literature for elementary and middle schools that can accompany the presentations.
Career Days: Employees from Jackson EMC can talk about careers and the education required in the energy industry. We are happy to send staff with extensive experience in engaging students in the fields on engineering, communications, finance, marketing and information technology.
