ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A Stateline business celebrates a century and a half of being open by giving the gift of knowledge.

Woodward teamed up with Rockford’s Discovery Center Museum to unveil a new exhibit. It’s called “Energy on the Move.” Woodward’s CEO says it gives kids a chance to learn while they play.
