Fourth grade students from Noonan Elementary recently visited Nueces Electric Cooperative to learn about electricity and energy resources.

Students had the opportunity to meet several line men and learned about electrical safety, energy efficiency, and even had time for some arts and crafts fun.

"The teachers talked about how informational it was. What a great field trip option for the kids," Principal Missy Barrington said.

NEC provides these field trips free of charge to area schools. Trips include lunch and the Co-op offers small transportation grants for schools in need.
