Break a piece / Extension Plug

Break a piece
Break a piece

people save energy when they are using an extension plug by switching off the button next to each of the plug hole. “Break a piece” is a new way to teach people to save energy by a symbolic motion. When you break part of the extension plug bar, the plugs after the crack become unelectrified, and when you put it back on, the blue LED light on top of the bar will go on which represents the plug is now electrified. This simple motion makes saving energy more
interesting, and it is also a good chance to teach kids about reducing electricity consumption by cutting the route off. Saving energy is just as easy as breaking a piece of chocolate.
