The West Virginia Farm Bureau's Mobile Agriculture Education Science Lab will visit Arnoldsburg Elementary School during the week of January 7-11.

The 40-foot Lab is a fully self-contained unit equipped with multiple research stations. A retired or certified teacher guides students while they conduct hands-on experiments designed to meet WV Department of Education Next Generation CSOs. Children learn about the importance of agriculture in every day living.

Students will do experiments, learn to read nutrition labels, discover which snacks are healthier for their bodies, and what food choices will promote healthy lifestyles. Some of the experiments include making "Glue from Milk" and comparing it to commercial glue; understanding the concept of environmental impact by making "Plastic from Corn" instead of from petroleum; and examining and comparing natural and man-made super absorbent products.

AES will host an Open House to promote the Mobile Lab, on Monday, January 7th, from 4-5. This open house will be for any community member and/or parents who would like to come out and learn about the lab. This is a wonderful experience for the students and they really enjoy doing it.
