Electricity is energy. It powers your homes and schools. But how is electricity made and how does it get from a power plant to your outlet? On this month’s D4K broadcast show, Host Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guest scientists will answer students’ questions about electricity. Cartan-Hansen will be joined by John Gardner from BSU and Kip Sikes from Idaho Power.
