TIOGA, N.D. – Nearly 40 fourth- and fifth-graders learned about the oil and gas industry Thursday during Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day at Hess Corp. in Tioga.

The students built simulated drilling rigs to learn about using geological data to drill oil wells. They also did an exercise to see how much money their wells generated, learned about obtaining mineral rights and got a demonstration on rig safety.
