Louie's Lab is subdivided into four chapters:
The Lab describes basic science concepts related to electricity.
Louie's Lessons presents basic electrical safety rules.
Louie's Land describes generation of electricity and traces the path that electricity takes to reach the end user.
The final section, Louie's Game Loft, is a 10-question quiz that tests a student's comprehension of the lessons. The quiz pulls questions randomly from a database, so the quiz is different each time it's taken.
