The SPE Colombian Section hosted an Energy Education Day with 5th grade students from Liceo Rodrigo Arena School in Bogota, Colombia. The event was hosted at the Maloka Science and Technology Park, located in the neighborhood city of Salitre in the locality of Fontibon Bogota, Colombia.
Colombian section members introduced students to the many possibilities within the oil & gas industry with a basic introduction on how hydrocarbons are formed and what happens to them in the industry.
Students were also taken on a tour of the center which highlighted the formation of oil & gas by showing them what happens when large and small organisms die and are not decomposed.
Energy4me is a resource that can be used by anyone in the world who is willing to give their time to students and teachers to educate them about the vast amount of opportunities that are available if a career within the realm of STEM is pursued. Our global volunteers are a testament to this fact.
