Visitors who tour the West Virginia Wildlife Center can now get information sent directly to their smart phone.

Fifth grade students at Union Elementary made it a class project of theirs to place quick response codes or QR codes at each exhibit.

Each sign has a code and will pull up an informative web page.

Students held fund raisers to pay for the project.

You'll need to download a barcode reader in order to scan the QR code.

The wildlife center and its gift shop are open until October 31 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a small admission fee.
