Georgia Power Launches Learning Power Mobile App
Wednesday, April 29th, 2020
While parents, teachers and students alike are managing new ways of learning during school closures and "stay-at-home" orders, the Georgia Power Learning Power app includes interactive lessons for students, offering fun, educational activities with real-world applications of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), energy and energy efficiency content.
The recently launched mobile game app supports Learning Power's STEM-based classroom energy lessons, all aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence. On the app, you will find seven grade-appropriate games, ranging from Pre-K through high school. Students can repair "Goldibot" in a robot circuitry experiment, harness solar power for a cell phone battery boost, or solve "Electri-City's" smart power grid puzzle.
"We are dedicated to improving and strengthening educational initiatives to help Georgia students build brighter futures," said Joseph Lillyblad, Georgia Power education and workforce development manager. "The launch of the Learning Power mobile game app provides an educational resource that focuses on enriching the student experience, while also providing educators and parents with interactive tools to engage their students during this time of home-based learning."
The free app is available for download from the Apple Store and Google Play.
