“I had no idea there was such significant technology at use in the energy industry today. Right here in Texas.”
That’s what one teacher said after attending the Energy4me workshop presented by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. By registering today, you can also be part of this exciting, informative, content-rich workshop!
Hosted during ATCE (SPE’s annual member event), this workshop provides educators with an up-close look at the energy industry, technologies, and professionals at work each day. Teachers will receive a standards-aligned, grade-level curriculum to take back to the classroom.
Another teacher said,
“This workshop provided me with knowledge as an individual, but also gave me tools to use in the classroom.”
Registration is open until 18 September.

All the “swag” you can carry from the exhibit floor. The exhibitors always have fun and educational items to help attendees learn more about the industry
Explore age-appropriate energy curriculum through hands-on activities. Instructors from the National Energy Education Development Project (NEED), the US’s leading provider of energy education programs and materials to schools, lead this part of the workshop. All NEED learning activities are correlated to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The workshop allows teachers the time to network with others, consider ways to integrate energy more deeply into their classrooms and provides an experience unique to teaching in the greater San Antonio area.
ATCE brings together some of the industry’s most engaging and accomplished professionals. During the workshop, teachers have the opportunity to chat with an engaging, insightful and entertaining speaker who shares about the role of energy in our everyday lives. The Q&A is engaging, honest and fun.
The exhibit floor reveals all aspects of the offshore oil and gas industry. From helicopters to blow out preventers to crew quarters for offshore rigs, the exhibit floor has it all! Participants in the teacher workshop get to tour and chat with energy professionals showcasing their technologies and services.
The oil and gas industry needs bright minds. No matter the market’s condition, the industry always needs engineers, and that’s why the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition conducts an award-winning educational program aimed to inspire the next generation of engineers. To encourage students to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), we offer an exciting workshop to San Antonio-area students during the conference.
Students will participate in hands-on energy exploration experiments provided by the US National Energy Education Development Project, meet industry professionals and tour the ATCE exhibit floor as part of a fun and educational scavenger hunt.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit organization. Income from this event will be invested back into SPE to support many other Society programs. When you attend an SPE event, you help provide even more opportunities for industry professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence. Scholarships, certification, the Distinguished Lecturer program, and SPE's energy education program Energy4me are just a few examples of programs that are supported by SPE.
