Students with an interest in science and technology received a hands-on lesson that is preparing them for the job force.
Bio-Energy Day is a day where students can get a closer look at what jobs they can get in the energy industry, an industry that employers are calling the fastest growing job sector in California.
Students were taken to a bio-energy plant northeast of Shafter. The plant that Welch works at produces renewable energy for PG&E and other power companies by processing old wood chips left over from the agricultural industry and construction sites.
