AMARILLO -- Several state leaders spent the day at Bell Helicopter talking about education and jobs in the aviation industry.

Two members of the State Board of Education and a member of the Texas Workforce Commission came to the factory to talk about ways to teach kids about jobs available in that sector and the education they'll need to get there.

The group says they hold these state-wide tours to encourage children to choose science and engineering as their careers.
