Hello ,

Here is some news about educational activities from Hydro-Québec.


Adventure filmmaker and ultramarathoner Caroline Côté is following the path of our electricity, starting at the power grid’s easternmost point. This gruelling athletic challenge of trekking 2,000 km in under 80 days began on April 4, and shines a light on Québec’s ingenuity, vastness and people. Follow this extraordinary human adventure, powered by our collective energy and with an eye on the future. Invite your students to write words of encouragement to Caroline.

Hydro-Québec uses ultrasound guidance systems to channel migrating American shad away from Rivière-des-Prairies generating station. The fish could otherwise be injured or killed by the turbine blades.

To find out more about the use of ultrasound, read the feature in Les Débrouillards (in French).
