The Coffeyville Boys and Girls Club uses virtual reality goggles to help kids learn about technical careers. BGC CEO Griffin Walker says the purpose of these goggles is to teach students about plumbing, electrical work or other trades.
Walker says the VR goggles cost about $2,000 a year a piece so they are looking at ways to have these goggles sponsored to get more. Walker gave a presentation to the USD 445 Board of Education about the goggles and other new things happening with the BGC. In other business, the board voted unanimously to adopt the 2023-2024 budget and exceed the revenue neutral rate.
