EEW Riggs LaSalle

On Wednesday, July 12, 2017 OPC Community Outreach Specialist Denise E. Blackson, in Partnership with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation presented a special summer energy safety and energy efficiency education workshop to 28 youth at the Riggs LaSalle Recreation Center located at 501 Riggs Road, NE in Washington DC.

Ms. Blackson engaged the youth in hands-on energy efficiency practices with verbal interaction using children’s educational activity materials specifically designed for elementary and middle school youth. Youth participating in the Riggs Lasalle camp ranged in age from 6 years to 10 years of age.





Part of the fun for youth participating in the workshops is competing to show how much they learned. Lisa, Malia, Kayden and Randolph won energy efficiency night lights and other prizes after correctly answering energy quiz questions about today’s workshop.
