Making lamps in 4H
 For the past several years the 6th grade students have learned about electricity in 4H.
As part of that study they make lamps that they can use at home.
They learn how to assemble a lamp safely.
Doing that they learn how to replace a cord on one they may have at home.
They must use an underwriters knot as a strain relief.
The neutral and hot wires must go to the proper terminals.
And all the connections must be secure.
You can see by their expressions that they are concentrating on doing the job correctly.


Once they are decorated and assembled we check the connections and then finally they see if they will really work.

Our thanks to Grayson Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation for their donation of the compact fluorescent bulbs for the lamps.
