Farmingville, NY – On November 16, Councilwoman Jane Bonner visited Mt. Sinai Elementary School for a presentation of “The Conservation Caper.” The program is sponsored by PSEG Long Island in partnership with The National Theatre for Children (NTC) to bring energy efficiency education to the local schools. This innovative program provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn about energy conservation. PSEG Long Island is presenting the 25-minute interactive performance at schools across Long Island, making it a cost-free supplement to lessons in science and the arts. In addition to the live performances, the program includes student playbooks, teacher
guides, classroom posters, e-books, and digital games and activities that align with the important concepts outlined in the live show. The educational comedy is geared for Kindergarten through sixth grade students and features a junior superhero named “Nikki Neutron” who is on a mission to stop energy from being wasted all over town. Along the way, Nikki and the students learn important energy efficiency lessons.
