As a professor and director of STEM Outreach at Motlow College, Billy Hix has the opportunity to reach students of all ages. Recently he visited Warren County and spent quality time with fifth-grade students at Hickory Creek Elementary sharing his vast knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math. During his visit, he brought his portable planetarium, which has been added to the Motlow program about four years ago.
