Students at Hagen Jr. High School learned about the energy industry during a two-day energy conference at the school this week.
On Wednesday, seventh graders learned about energy-based careers and on Thursday the eighth graders will have a chance to speak to representatives from different energy sectors.
Trista Dakken, seventh grade counselor at Hagen, said that she felt it was important for students to have the opportunity to attend a conference, like the one at Bismarck State College.
"BSC puts on an energy conference, and I took three or four kids this year and last year, and I thought, 'This is so awesome. I want all of my students to be able to experience this,'" Dakken said.
