Linemen from Westar Energy visited Lecompton 4th graders this Friday to teach a bit about electricity and how to remain safe around power lines. The linemen were really impressed with how much students already knew about the topic. They didn’t know that the kids had recently completed a unit on the topic in their science classes. This was a wonderful review and enrichment activity to help kids really learn the material and to take it a step further. Thanks to Mrs. Surface for setting this up.

After a fascinating safety demonstration in the gym, we went outside for a dramatic pole climbing demonstration and a quick tour of their cherry picker truck. Both Mrs. Surface and Mr. Brown got into the cherry picker bucket and were lifted 40 feet above the parking lot to ecstatic cheers.
