Fall is in the air! It is almost time to welcome our west Texas scholars to Kids On the Land at the 69 Ranch! We couldn’t be more excited. Fifth Graders will get to see a wind turbine up close and learn how they work from on-site engineers. Cowboy Joe will be on hand to show how an old school windmill pumps water for livestock and wildlife. There will be ladybugs, ladybugs, ladybugs and lots of other insects too!
Kids On the Land “KOL” is a unique Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) environmental program designed to teach children about the region where they live, connecting them to the land and a more sustainable future.
The program is presented in during the Spring and Fall school semesters and in 2015.
