This 35-minute show presents a virtual lesson in energy efficiency for grades K-6. Through an interactive web platform, a live host will introduce entertaining sketches featuring a variety of characters in professionally filmed scenes from our live theatrical productions – and guide classrooms to participate in a discussion on resources and energy conservation.
Through puppetry and sing-along for grades K-2 and in-depth discussion questions for grades 3-6, students are prompted to consider how we can use energy wisely after watching each sketch:
Scene 1: Superhero Nikki Neutron visits gadget guru Agent Y at The Energized Guyz Headquarters to learn how energy is wasted. Our heroes don’t realize that a villain lurks nearby!
Scene 2: Nikki Neutron travels across the world to meet Attila the Honey Badger, a very special member of The Energized Guyz team. But what’s that up in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it … Vivica Voltage?
Scene 3: Nikki Neutron and Attila the Honey Badger confront Vivica Voltage in her own home, determined to stop her from activating her energy-wasting device. Will they succeed? Will saving triumph over waste? Will Vivica Voltage ever change her ways?
Students and teachers will also have access to a Q&A with the host, and an exclusive e-learning package that includes e-books and graphic novels, games, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom that reinforce concepts from the show. Additionally, the program challenges your students (and staff) to save energy at home by providing Energy Kits that contain items to conserve electricity and water.
