The Conservation Caper

energy efficiency


Thank you for taking the time to educate your students and their families about energy efficiency. We regret that we were unable to visit your school this year due to the ongoing health crisis. However, we want you to know that you can still participate by using NTC’s digital package and supplemental educational materials for distance learning. Accessing the materials is easy, and we believe that they integrate seamlessly with national and regional educational standards, as well as classroom curricula.


This entertaining, eight-minute video features a cast of NTC characters who introduce segments of previously recorded footage from NTC’s live, theatrical energy programs. The video explores the following four, main educational concepts:

  • What energy is
  • The uses of energy
  • How energy is wasted
  • What YOU can do to conserve energy

The concepts are broken up into simple, easy-to-understand sections. Not only will this video give your students important background information on the science of energy and electricity, it will also let them know how we can all form positive habits and behaviors in order to become better, environmental stewards.
