In the name of getting 'em young and never mind the carnage, Ohio's oil and gas industry has created its own "education" program to teach kids the energy industry is groovy - aka "promotion of a positive public awareness" - partnering with Radio Disney to travel to schools, museums and county fairs with a fun inter-active show featuring games, prizes and contests like pipeline-building competitions to see "how we get oil and gas to your home." "Cheer these guys on like crazy!" urges the MC, who fails to mention the fracking-related environmental hazards or the 167 drilling-related earthquakes that hit Ohio this year. The outreach program is inexplicably called, straight-faced, "Rocking In Ohio." It never mentions the word fracking.
"We want kids to get excited about science. We would love to see young scientists pursing careers in the energy industry.” - OOGEEP spokesperson
