Discover science and all its glory at Einstein’s Adventurarium in Gillette, Wyoming!
Basin Electric is working on a new way to teach students about coal and the way it is used to make electricity.
Einstein’s Adventurarium is a science center owned by the Campbell County school district. Jodi Crago-Wyllie is the science center director and the elementary science facilitator. She says there is a great need to educate young students and their families about the energy development going on in the Powder River Basin and Campbell County in northeast Wyoming.
Over 7,000 elementary-school students from Wyoming and surrounding states visit the adventurarium every year. The adventurarium features life science, earth science, and physical science areas. Basin Electric, in partnership with Alpha Natural Resources, is working on a new and improved coal and electricity display. Take a look at the video to see how the adventurarium looks today.
