While the Congress Program was packed with sessions, roundtables, workshops, and forums for energy experts, educational opportunities for youth was also built into the Congress’ total experience.
In partnership with Energy4me® and Pioneer Natural Resources, local high schoolers and area colleges and universities complemented classroom curriculum on energy and sustainability with hands-on learning experience at the Congress.
WPC Energy4me Student STEM Day
The WPC Energy4me Student STEM Day welcomed Houston-area high school students to an energy education day that inspired and educated. With hands-on activities, a technology tour, and career presentation, students received hands-on experiences through activities that created connections between the classroom and real-world situations. This style of teaching also nurtures critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which are traits that many employers value.
