EQT presented a two-year, $500,000 grant to the Clay Center of Charleston for its "Power Your Future" project March 18 at the State Capitol. A mobile exhibit, a bi-fuel powered bus with 11 different stations geared for middle school and junior high-aged students, is expected to roll out later this year. 

"It's important for us to give back to our communities," said Ellen Donley, executive vice president of the EQT Foundation. "This exhibit will take mobile education throughout West Virginia."

"It's an investment in the future of our state and our children," added Judy Wellington, president and CEO of the Clay Center.

The exhibit will include high-tech games, supporting activities and web-based resources for students to test their skills and learn about engineering and technology, science and the many uses of natural resources.
