Japanese Visitors Tour Earth Science Center

Japanese students tour ESC Smiling across the cultures On Thursday, a group of students from Tsuyama National Technical College in Tsuyama, Japan, toured Penn College’s School of Natural Resources Management. The tour was part of a weeklong student exchange program organized by Penn College’s International Programs Office and physics instructor Joseph E. LeBlanc. Joined by Eric Rambo, their English teacher in Tsuyama, the students particularly were impressed with the Schneebeli Earth Science Center’s four greenhouses with 15,000 square feet of growing area and five-acre plant arboretum, and also enjoyed touring the diesel and heavy equipment technology labs.
