The program "CPFL at Schools" shared knowledge about the conscious use of electric power with students from municipal schools in Hortolândia (SP). The visits took place from October 29 to November 1. Students and teachers visited the Multifunctional Mobile Learning Unit of CPFL Energia: a truck with a series of equipment showing, in a practical and playful manner, the origins of electric power generation, and how to use it intelligently.

The presentation of the Mobile Unit to students, teachers, and the community was the final stage of program "CPFL at Schools". Over the past six months, the program acted in class rooms, by means of training of trainers who spread good practices for electric power consumption. In this period, over five hundred students from the 2nd to the 5th grade of basic education enrolled in municipal schools were encouraged to become multipliers of information they learned by taking it to their families.
