Georgia Power has announced that 100,000 students in Georgia have been instructed through the company's Learning Power program.

Learning Power is a statewide education initiative designed to bring energy education into classrooms.

Eleven Georgia Power education coordinators work throughout the state teaching the Learning Power curriculum to elementary, middle, and high school students through in-class field trips at no cost to schools.

"Lessons are like in class field trips with hands on activities that last for about an hour. They educate the students about energy efficiency in school and at home. We also build awareness around careers in the electric utility industry with these lessons," said Crystal Godfrey, Education Coordinator for Georgia Power's Energy Efficiency Organization.

The Learning Power program focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects.
