Description:

The 4-H Electric Program is an informal hands-on youth program conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service and its professional 4-H agents and volunteer adult leaders located in all 100 counties and Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indian. Youth learn about the fundamentals of electricity, renewable energy technologies, and energy conservation. Activities include learning how to solder, learning the difference between series and parallel circuits, and assembling can lamps. Youth learn many life skills while participating in this program, but also generate more enthusiasm for science and technology.

North Carolina 4-H Electric Congress is an educational event designed to recognize excellence in the Electric Program throughout the state. Electric Congress travels from region to region of the state, thus allowing for a variety of programming opportunities for everyone. Four-H members participate in educational workshops, meet Power Company Representatives, learn about careers in the energy industry, and interact with other electric winners.
