A group of Waukegan elementary school students recently toured Midwest Generation's Waukegan Generating Station as part of the League of United Latin American Citizens of Waukegan Little School of Electricity, which taught students about the importance of electricity in their everyday lives.
In addition, students were able to learn about Thomas Alva Edison, "The Father of Electricity," hands-on by building an electric model similar to the one Edison himself constructed during the 1800s.
The students received certificates of recognition for completing the program. The students presented station Director Mark Nagel with an electric model similar to that of Edison that will be on permanent display at the station.
