ConocoPhillips is partnering with the National Energy Education Development Project to provide teachers with training and resources on key energy topics.
Over the course of this year, ConocoPhillips will sponsor 24 energy education workshops in communities across the United States. These seminars are designed to equip teachers in elementary, middle and high schools with tools to improve their students’ energy knowledge and encourage classroom dialogue about energy.
ConocoPhillips also will sponsor teacher training through workshops at national and regional educator conferences.
“ConocoPhillips believes that the science of energy is an important topic for our nation’s education system, and is pleased to join the NEED Project to provide training and resources to help energy become a part of America’s classrooms,” said Jim Mulva, chairman and chief executive officer of ConocoPhillips.
“As part of our company’s long-standing commitment to education, we believe it is vital that we prepare today’s students for careers in math and science, in order to ensure the efficient use of our natural resources now and in the future.”
The NEED Project is designed to promote an energy conscious and educated society by creating effective networks of students, educators, business, government and community leaders to design and deliver objective, multi-sided energy education programs.
