L/S WIB receives $10,000 grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeastern Pennsylvania to bring the mobile science lab to Northeastern Pennsylvania

Gregory Hostetter, the Deputy Secretary for Animal Health & Food Safety at the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and State Representative Michael B. Carroll (D-118, Luzerne/Lackawanna counties) visited the Pittston Area Intermediate Center/Middle School Tuesday to watch students as they used the Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture – Mobile Agriculture Education Science Lab to learn about the importance of agriculture and the food on their table.

The Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board, in conjunction with the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce and Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce, recently received a $10,000 grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeastern Pennsylvania that it is using to bring the mobile lab to four elementary/middle schools in the Pittston Area, Wyoming Area, North Schuylkill and Shenandoah Valley school districts.

Hostetter said, “This mobile agricultural lab is great because it educates children on what agriculture is all about. It’s a hands-on learning experience and the students can do workshops. This combination of hands-on learning and science is very important. I’m sure the students will remember what they learn in this lab for years to come.”
