AABE HOUSTON 2013 ENERGY WORKSHOP
Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM (CDT)
The energy industry is fueling careers and growth in the US economy now and for years to come. The Energy Workshop is designed for high school students in the 9th to 12th grades to learn ways that their talents and passions can be used in the energy industry.
We are looking for students to participate who are interested in mathematics, sciences, business, technology, law or engineering. This will be an opportunity for students to 1) learn from and network with professionals and experts in the energy industry and 2) compete on a team project. In addition, students who attend will be eligible to compete for annual scholarships that are awarded by the AABE Houston chapter and learn about internship programs.
TO AABE MEMBERS & PROFESSIONALS:
Please come out and support us by volunteering for this important step in assuring a bright future for the energy industry.
