Claremore teachers begin school with free supplies

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

The OERB is in its 17th year offering these free workshops. The hands-on curricula reach students at all ages and grade levels. The OERB provides the Little Bits program for early childhood education, Fossils to Fuel and Fossils to Fuel 2 program for elementary students, a Petro Active program for middle school students and CORE Energy for high school students. Each curriculum uses lab experiments, reading assignments, games and more. 
Bates teaches 5th grade at Justus-Tiawah Public School. She attended to become trained to teach Fossils to Fuel in her classroom.
“This workshop will provide an excellent supplement to our science curriculum and is relevant to our students because of our state’s oil and gas industry,” she said.
Hancock teaches Kindergarten at Justus-Tiawah. She was trained in the Little Bits program, and is excited about what it will do for her students. 
“It will make them aware of all the things that come from petroleum,” she said. “It will also keep them safe from the potential dangers of oilfield equipment.”
For more information on OERB’s education programs, or to sign up for a workshop, visit www.oerb.com and click on the “For Educators” tab. 
The OERB was created in 1993 by the Oklahoma Legislature and is funded through a voluntary one tenth of 1 percent assessment on oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners.  
The agency’s purpose is to conduct environmental restoration of abandoned well sites and to educate Oklahomans about the importance of the petroleum industry.
