Energize Your Classroom Teacher Workshop
0900–1630, Wednesday, 22 September
Sala della Scherma, First Floor, Monumentale
Energy4me, the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) energy education outreach program, is inviting 50 Tuscany-area science teachers (of students ages 12–18) to ATCE to learn how to teach energy topics in a fun and exciting way!
Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its importance, while discovering the world of oil and natural gas exploration and production. A variety of free instructional materials will be available to take back to the classroom.
Activities will include:
- Briefing on Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
An SPE Energy Ambassador speaker will provide an opening briefing on the role of energy in our everyday lives, followed by a question and answer period.
- Hands-on Classroom Activities
Teachers will learn age-appropriate energy experiments that can energize their classrooms through hands-on activities. Instructors from the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci will lead this part of the workshop.
- Technology Tour
Industry professionals and museum staff will lead teachers on an exhibit tour of the amazing high-tech tools, software, and equipment used by the oil and gas industry to find and produce energy resources around the world.
There is no cost for teachers to attend the workshop thanks to a generous sponsorship from ExxonMobil. Lunch will be provided.
