WHEELING, W.Va. — Kids at the Linsly School had a chance to learn all about the oil and gas industry in a new way Monday.
The Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit made its first stop in the state of West Virginia.
It's a traveling exhibit that teaches students about how STEM is related to the oil and natural gas field.
The students got hands-on with different experiments, and everybody was very excited about what they learned.
“There's a lot more to it than just what people say,” 8th grader Giana Falbo said. “There's a lot of processes they have to go through and technology and stuff that they use. It really affects today too, because we have a lot more technology."
The Linsly School welcomed the mobile oilfield unit to Wheeling thanks to a grant it received from Cabot Oil and Gas.
