Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) and Discovery Channel School are pleased to provide an educational kit like no other! Students will Get Charged! with this comprehensive and exciting set of instructional materials supporting a key science Standard of Learning in Virginia’s middle schools - electricity.
