DTE Energy's Website for Children - DTE Kids - Has Been Updated with New Activities

DETROIT, Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DTE Energy has recently launched its redesigned web site for children - dtekids.com - where young visitors can learn about electrical and natural gas safety, energy efficiency, the environment and new, innovative ways energy is being used to power our communities.

When children visit the new site, they begin inside a clubhouse where they can meet five animated club members - Jay, Erin, Aisha, Ryan and a dog named Digger.  From the clubhouse, kids can follow the characters and participate in interactive games, quizzes and experiments.

The site is geared for students in grades four through six and even suggests topics for school assignments and science projects.

"We really want to teach kids how to be safe around energy sources, to be wise energy consumers and to be respectful of the environment," said David Whitman, DTE Energy director of advertising and brand communications. "The DTE Kids Club does this in a way that is fun, entertaining and engaging."

Additional features will be added to the dtekids.com site in the coming months.
