ConocoPhillips Partners with NEED To Provide Science Training to Teachers
HOUSTON, TX.– ConocoPhillips [NYSE:COP] today announced it is partnering with the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to provide America’s teachers with training and resources on key energy topics.
“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.”
Beginning later this month, ConocoPhillips will sponsor 24 energy education workshops in communities across the United States in 2008. These seminars are designed to equip K-12 teachers with tools to improve their students’ energy knowledge and encourage classroom dialogue about energy. ConocoPhillips also will sponsor training opportunities for educators through workshops at national and regional educator conferences.
“ConocoPhillips’ generous investment in the NEED Project will help address public educators’ growing demands for quality energy curriculum and training for tomorrow’s workforce,” said Mary Spruill, executive director of the NEED Project. “We consider an energy-literate public the pathway to overcoming the energy challenges of the future.”
