February 16, 2006
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEWISTON—The Power Vista, the visitors center at the New
York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Niagara Power Project, is the perfect
destination for educational field trips this spring or anytime. The center
offers free programs for students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12,
and also houses more than 50 interactive exhibits on electricity,
technology, history and more.
During scheduled programs, students will discuss topics
such as electrical safety, the basics of electricity and the history and
construction of the Niagara Power Project. Having a “hair-raising”
experience on the Van de Graaf generator is sure to be the class favorite!
The outdoor observation decks also provide breathtaking views of the Niagara
River and Gorge 350 feet below, and a dining area is available for brown-bag
and picnic lunches.
The admission-free Power Vista is open daily (except for
some holidays) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To schedule a field trip for your
students, scouts or youth group, or for additional information, call (716)
