A Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit is helping students across Northeastern Pennsylvania learn about energy thanks to Cabot, Southwestern Energy and Williams.
Youths at schools in three counties will have a better idea of how their math and science studies relate to the natural gas industry by the end of the week, as the Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit (MOLU) makes its way through the region. Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation sponsored the virtual field trip, which made its first stop at Elk Lake Elementary School on Monday.
Students are divided into up as many as 24 groups to move through four activities at each of six stations that resemble kiosks. With workbooks in hand, they move through a variety of aspects of the gas and petroleum industries, including safety, history, geology, oil exploration and extraction, and products derived from fossil fuels.
