Exhibit to Teach Students About Natural Gas
Students across West Virginia and surrounding states will get a hands-on experience with science and technology thanks to a new mobile exhibit.
Officials at the Clay Center in Charleston say the "Power Your Future" project received a two-year, $500,000 grant from EQT Foundation for the exhibit that is expected to hit the road later this year.
The exhibit is geared toward middle and junior high school students. It will feature 11 different stations and game-based software to help students learn about the exploration, extraction and use of natural gas.
The "Power Your Future" project also includes a new outreach initiative in which participating middle schools will produce digital stories exploring energy issues in their communities.
The programs are designed to gauge students' abilities and interests in science and technology topics.
