Energy4me, the Society of Petroleum Engineers' (SPE) energy education outreach program, is inviting 100 New Orleans-area science teachers (grades 4-12) to learn how to teach energy topics in a fun and exciting way during ATCE!

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.


  • Presentation on Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
    A keynote speaker will present 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 provided by the US National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project. All NEED learning activities are correlated to Louisiana's science objectives and other disciplines.
  • Technology Tour
    Industry professionals 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.
