More than 20 middle and high school students spent a day last week at the Baker Hughes Drill Bit Facility in The Woodlands, Texas, to learn about the oil and gas industry and careers. In its second year, the Baker Hughes STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) event that started in Texas has expanded to other Baker Hughes locations worldwide. In this exclusive video, Shelly Cory, an engineer and founder of the STEM event at Baker Hughes, talks about the impact the program can have on students and industry.
