Conserving Energy

Students at Bosti and Idle Hour Elementary Schools were recently provided with useful energy conservation strategies during a highly engaging theatrical presentation, “The Conservation Capers,” courtesy of PSEG Long Island and representatives of The National Theatre for Children.

During the show, the character “Nikki Neutron” guided the eager students through her journey to learn more about energy and stop the supervillain “Dr. Maybe” from wasting water and energy. Along the way, students learned informative facts about energy, including how power plants function, how energy can be used in a highly efficient manner and the benefit of using LED light bulbs in their homes. 

At the conclusion of the performance, a student volunteer assisted Nikki Neutron in challenging Dr. Maybe to a cumulative quiz about all they learned during the presentation, ultimately defeating Dr. Maybe and saving the world’s energy supply.
