Learning about energy is fun for Le Sueur-area elementary students.
In May, Hilltop Elementary School participated in an Energy Education field trip, hosted by the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA), wholesale power supplier to the city of Le Sueur’s electric utility.
MMPA and the Science Museum of Minnesota provided an interactive learning experience to local fourth graders. While visiting Faribault Energy Park, MMPA’s power plant, students learned about the importance of electricity and the power of their hometown. MMPA’s Energy Education program has served more than 15,000 students in MMPA member communities, including Le Sueur.
