Pump jacks today often are set on automatic timers since they operate with electricity rather than gas. These machines can start up with no warning. In addition to injuries or death from the machinery, toxic gases, such as hydrogen sulfide present dangers to anyone standing too close to oilfield sites.

One can be overtaken by the fumes, burned by exposure, and even die.

Nathan Williams, Suzanne Hargus and Zoe Collier pose with the marble roller coaster they constructed in Mrs. Jackson’s math class. Students in Jackson’s math classes spent the final weeks of the semester doing project-based learning activities. Students built bridges, prosthetic hands and feet, boats, mazes and roller coasters. Jackson participated in the two-week science, technology, engineering and math workshop last summer sponsored by the Osage County Inter-local Coop where teachers from the area were introduced to many aspects of the STEM program to help inspire students in these fields. Many of the supplies used for the projects were from a grant Jackson received from the Pawhuska School Foundation.
