March break: Electricity and science made accessible at the Electrium!

    SAINTE-JULIE, QC, Feb. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - The Electrium, Hydro-Québec's
electricity interpretation centre, is offering a special program of activities
for the March break. From March 3 to 9, 2008, film screenings and contests
have been added to the centre's regular guided tour. And of course, all these
activities are free!
    At the Electrium, young people and their families "get a charge" out of
learning all about electricity: its role in the human body, the origin of
lightning, the secrets of the electric eel and how the earth's magnetic field
works. And now, for the March break, the Electrium is adding on even more
exciting activities:

    - A new movie, Follow the Line, shows how electricity gets from the power
      station to your home. Visitors could win a prize by taking part in a
      quiz based on the film.
    - Children 5 to 7 years old will enjoy a screening of Science, Please!,
      funny animated shorts on science-related topics produced by the
      National Film Board.
    - For young people 5 to 14 years old, there's an art contest. Gift sets
      will be awarded for the three most creative drawings.
    - And for younger children, there's a makeup workshop between 11 a.m. and
      3 p.m., from Monday, March 3 to Friday, March 7.

    The Electrium is located in Sainte-Julie, near Exit 128 off Highway 30,
in the Montérégie region.
