Teaming up in the name of science
If you live or have lived in Casper, Wyoming and a have a kid or two or five, you’ll likely have heard about The Science Zone. According to VisitCasper, The Science Zone is, “…the ultimate playground with an educational twist”. Fremont Volkswagen of Casper has recently teamed up with The Science Zone by donating the use of a brand new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. This enables the Science Zone to continue their outreach programs throughout the Natrona County region. They will be using the SUV to travel to schools. Bringing science right to the doorstep of children in the area.
“As The Science Zone moves into the future of education and student engagement, we recognize Fremont Volkswagen as an indispensable partner who is LITERALLY propelling us forward. This partnership results in fuel-efficient and reliable transportation by which the educators from The Science Zone continue the educational outreach” says Jason DeWitt, Development Director at The Science Zone.
Corey Rissler, General Manager of the Fremont Volkswagen dealership, believes aiding future education and science in the community is incredibly important. He does not think budget cuts in the school systems should impact the future success of our next generation by limiting the resources available to them. Inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers is invaluable and necessary. It is our pleasure to help those who want to help our youth move forward and continue their mission!
