The Edgerton Explorit Display


Last week we delivered our newly developed interactive, educational display, called “Can Corn Fuel the Future?” to The the Edgerton Explorit Center.

The Edgerton Explorit Center is a hands-on learning science center in Aurora. The educational unit created for the Center is focused on science to teach their students about growing Nebraska corn, the many uses of corn, and most specifically, the process of making the renewable fuel – ethanol – from corn. ] The purpose of the exhibit is to show the students and their parents one of the main ways we use corn, to produce ethanol and distillers grains! To really try and simplify the process so that everyone can understand how it works.

The display will be housed at the Center year-round except for the times we will be displaying it at the State Fair and the River City Rodeo & Stockshow. It is also possible that the display may make it on the Edgerton on the Move program, a program that brings different science curriculum on the road to elementary aged students across Nebraska.

The videos used in the display are all available online and can be used in any classroom. To view the video’s that are available on the display, visit the Education tab on the Nebraska Corn Board website or click here.
