Houston-area educators: learn ways to energize your classroom at the OTC teacher workshop (grades 4–12) or bring your students at an exciting STEM event for high school students ages 15 or older.

Teacher Workshop

OTC will invite 100 Houston-area classroom teachers (grades 4-12) to attend a free, one-day energy education workshop. Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its importance while discovering the world of oil and natural gas exploration and production. Registration for the teacher workshop will begin 3 March and end 11 April.

High School Student STEM Event

OTC is educating the next generation of aspiring engineers, scientists and managers about the oil and gas industry. Approximately 200 high school students will see firsthand the exciting opportunities the oil and gas industry can offer. The program will include a scavenger hunt of the technology exhibits and hands-on energy lessons provided by the US National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project. Students will again have the opportunity to meet industry professionals and ask questions about possible careers in the oil and gas industry.
