Long Drain Students To Attend West Virginia Governor’s STEM Institue
Three seventh grade students from Long Drain School were selected to attend the West Virginia Governor’s STEM Institute at West Virginia University from July 1-9. These students were selected at the state level to represent Wetzel County. The theme for this year’s institute is “Going Places – the Math and Science of Transportation.” The experiences at the institute this year are based on the idea that the scientific and mathematic discoveries which were developed over long periods of time by motivated, dedicated, thorough, and creative minds have made a significant difference in the world. Students are invited to delve into projects that allow them the time and opportunity to think and work like scientists and engineers, using high level mathematics and thinking skills while employing the latest technology. The students will explore multiple methods of transportation from the time that transportation was developed.
