Event description

Description

What

A hands-on, two-day workshop sponsored by Arkansas’s oil and natural gas community where teachers will learn about this vital industry and how it has changed the face of Arkansas as a place for business. Teachers will see technology in action as we take a tour of a production well, a drilling equipment and rig yard, a landfill capturing its own methane for use, and one of the state’s six CNG stations. You will hear about regulatory and environmental aspects of the business from state authorities and concerned organizations. Come get the facts about this industry that continues to bring job opportunities, royalty income, tax revenue, and increased business to our state. Those attending will earn approximately 14 professional development hours.

Who

Twenty-four Arkansas 3rd-12th grade Science, Math and Technology, Social Studies, and Gifted and Talented teachers.

When

Monday, June 11 at 10 a.m. through Wednesday, June 12, at 3:30 p.m.

Where

Day one will take place at the Fort Smith Regional Office of the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission. Day two will include an extensive tour of the industry activity in the area. Teachers will be provided lodging at a local hotel. The field tour will take us across the Ft. Smith area to see wells in action, a unique landfill, a large working compressor station and an equipment yard with an upright drilling rig, drilling bits and other equipment used in the production of natural gas in Arkansas.
