New Hampshire Wired

Electricity is one of the single most important industrial achievements of our time, and its impact on our lives is far-reaching. New Hampshire Wired is an educational resource for grades 4-8 that traces the history of electricity in our state. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, New Hampshire Wired is aligned with a number of state educational standards, including social studies, history, science, and math. PSNH sponsored the development of New Hampshire Wired, in collaboration with the New Hampshire Historical Society, the New Hampshire Humanities Council, and the New Hampshire Department of Education.

PSNH has provided New Hampshire Wired to schools and teachers and is available here for the benefit of home schools and the general public.
