Valdosta - Educators in Lowndes County have been waiting two years for the opportunity to teach their students from the back of a semi-truck.

But it's not just any truck. It's the National Science Center's Discovery Vehicle.

It's a science center on wheels that rolls around the country showing kids grades three through nine that math and science can be fun.

They say each year, more students loose interest in the maths and sciences, so they hope this unique program will not keep them interested but wanting to learn more.  "To keep kids interested in science. To show that science is fun so it keeps their interest in it and they stay in school. We are encouraging people to stay all the way through high school and go to college," says Calvin Marschall.

There are two mobile classroom like this one who visit all schools for free. They say the program is so popular with such a high success rate that it books up a year in advance.
