The Education Day is an initiative to introduce students to the discipline of petroleum engineering, and the industry in general. About 100 high school students with keen interest in science, who may consider majoring in Petroleum and related engineering programmes when they enter university, will be invited to attend.
A number of industry professionals have been invited to share their experience with students through talks on topics of general interest and relevance to the industry. Following the talks, the students will be given a guided tour of the exhibition area. They will be able to see first hand the high-end technology used by engineers and the sophisticated software available for solving many engineering problems. It is hoped that they will leave the conference with a better understanding of what petroleum engineers do and their role in the broader community. Equally important, they will also become aware that a petroleum engineering career is full of challenges, teamwork and responsibilities.

SPE through its Energy4me program will present a FREE, one-day energy education workshop for 50 Brisbane-area science teachers. Educators will receive comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and its global significance 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 a technology tour of the world’s leading offshore oil and natural gas technology exhibitions, a keynote presentation and age-appropriate hands-on classroom activities. Teachers will receive a cover teacher reimbursement form at the end of the workshop. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
