Lagos State Electricity Board, LSEB, has concluded plans to hold the 2015 annual Lagos Power Kids Programme, LAPK, Monday, June 1.
The programme is one of the youth energy development initiatives which the state government administered through LSEB and has been running for the last three years.
The programme, entitled ‘Solar Energy,’ is expected to have about 1,000 students selected from 50 junior and senior secondary schools that are part of Lagos solar project.
They have been chosen to participate in the interactive and engaging solar energy boot camp at the LSEB, Ikeja.
According to LAPK Coordinator, Mrs. Yewande Olagbende, the 2015 edition will enhance the students’ experience more than the previous editions.
“The students will have the opportunity to visit the Lagos Energy Academy, Lagos Solar enclosure and the Mainland Power Plant which all offer them something unique to learn about,” she said.
General Manager, LSEB, Mrs. Damilola Ogunbiyi, said the programme was designed for public secondary school students to understand solar energy, instil an energy awareness culture from a young age and make the students energy ambassadors.
