The partnership between UH Energy and the high school academies supported by the Independent Petroleum Association of America/Petroleum Equipment & Services Association (IPAA/PESA) promotes STEM careers and engages the future technical workforce. Its initiatives range from the Oil & Gas Career Conference to the Technology Challenge, helping high school students learn the basics of the energy industry.
The collaboration between UH Energy and IPAA/PESA provides high school students with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in high school, college and into the energy industry.
UH Energy and IPAA/PESA will continue to work together to prepare and inspire the next generation. Future initiatives include a second Career Conference for juniors and seniors, as well as more hands on experiences such as the Technology Challenge.
