Supporting customers and communities is an important part of Idaho Power’s role as a trusted energy provider. Through a new exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Idaho in Meridian, the company helped create a fun, hands-on educational resource in the Treasure Valley.
The “Power Up” exhibit provides an interactive introduction to electricity, including generation, energy resources, energy efficiency, the pioneers of electricity and hands-on activities to teach kids about circuits and the transfer of energy. “Power Up” was made possible through a $5,000 sponsorship by Idaho Power, which donates more than $1 million annually to several charitable causes.
“Idaho Power was great to work with on this exhibit,” Children’s Museum Director Pat Baker said. “We felt it was important for children to understand how power comes to be and what the different forms of generation are, and they see all that presented in this exhibit.”
