Girl Power - Electricity North West Challenge

Our Girl Power challenge, developed in partnership with Electricity North West, has electrifying activities on electrical safety, energy efficiency, and more...!

The challenge is designed to spark your curiosity about the world around you and explore ways in which electricity works in your everyday lives, as well as to help you understand the importance of energy efficiency and how small changes can make a difference to the environment, and save money.

The challenges in the pack are designed to be informative and fun. Some can be completed alone, others in groups, and several are full unit challenges and offer an opportunity to compete against others for unit prizes….. let’s see who has the best ideas!

You will learn how to stay safe around electricity and understand what to be aware of and why anyone, especially children, should stay away from the power network.
