PSO announces safety partnership with National Theatre for Children


Public Service Company of Oklahoma announced it has partnered with The National Theatre for Children to educate students and their families about electrical safety in their communities.

This spring, beginning on April 12, the Captain Wattage e-learning livestreamed program will be made available to K-5 audiences Oklahoma.

The Captain Wattage livestream event features a live host who introduces the program, sets up and recaps a series of educational videos, and leads a Q&A in which students and teachers can submit questions for the host to answer live in real time. The livestream events are supplemented by a complete online curriculum including games, hands-on lessons, interactive activities, e-books, graphic novels and more.

While PSO and NTC have partnered to bring in-person theatrical performances into schools for many years, fall 2020 was the first time the program shifted to an all-digital alternative, thanks to COVID-19 and the difficulty of hosting all-school assemblies. Teachers and students raved about the virtual livestream program last fall, as it offered a new and engaging educational resource for classrooms learning remotely.

The electrical safety virtual program continues in 2021, PSO and NTC deliver brand new, superhero-themed livestream performances. Students will learn about how electricity is made, the uses of electricity, how to identify dangerous electrical situations, and ways to stay safe around electricity. Schools in PSO’s service area will experience the livestream events and virtual program this spring, with more slated to receive the program in fall 2021.
