School Tours

Would you like your students to learn how our electricity system can be safe, smart, and sustainable?

We offer tours of our Electrical Operations Centre to Grade 6 and 9 students.  We are happy to host over 400 excited, energetic students each year through our school tour program.

In 2014, a new Smart Metering Display was added as part of our school tours.  The display features a three-dimensional (3D) interactive mural created by young artists through Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming (SCYAP).  SCYAP offers visual and graphic arts training to youth at risk in the Saskatoon area at no cost.  The new display was featured in the 2014 Annual Sustainable Electricity Report for the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA).

What will your students learn?
Students will learn what electricity is and how to be safe around it.  They will learn about the environmental, social, and economic impacts of electricity use in Saskatchewan, and ways to reduce those impacts. They will also learn about career opportunities in the electricity industry.
