Approximately 200 high school math and science students from across Texas arrived at the 2012 OTC on 3 May to participate in Energy Education Institute: High School STEM. The BP-sponsored event began with hands-on activities provided by the US National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project, giving students the opportunity to apply their knowledge to science- and math-based lessons.

Students were then led by BP representatives to explore the OTC exhibit floor. Exhibitors answered technical questions asked by students while providing valuable insight into careers in the energy industry.

To conclude the event, energy professionals sat down with the students for lunch to discuss the importance of energy and the career opportunities available. Students also received take-home educational and career handouts, as well as items provided by OTC sponsoring societies.

DC editorial coordinator Katherine Scott provides video coverage of the event’s full-day program.
