Energy Day features interactive demonstrations and exciting exhibits that introduce, teach, and showcase various forms of energy to students and their families. Exhibits range from hands-on demonstrations where attendees can see how an energy process works to small and large scale installations that kids can observe. We encourage organizations to be creative and show the fun side of STEM.
Academic awards handed out on Energy Day are part of the Energy Day Academic Program (EDAP) that helps to amplify existing academic competitions and events through a series of unique, city and state-wide, STEM- and energy-related competitions that are aimed to motivate, challenge, and inspire young minds to seek careers in STEM fields.
Energy Day is successful by reinforcing what students learn in their classrooms, making learning fun and hands-on. With the help of partner schools and institutions, children young and old can get a better idea of the importance of STEM education and the development of new energy technology.
The Energy Day Festival was founded in Houston, Texas in 2011 to provide outreach and educational support materials, events, activities, resources, and information about career opportunities in STEM and the various energy fields - stressing the importance of energy, conservation, and efficiency in our daily lives to schools, students, and their families.
Energy Day is Houston’s largest FREE family festival showcasing exhibits focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Energy Day will feature exciting exhibits and interactive demonstrations that will teach students and their families about various forms of energy and how through STEM education, they can find an exciting career in the energy industry. With the support of our local schools and energy experts, it’s our hope that students and families who attend can learn something new and develop an interest in STEM education.
2016 BY THE NUMBERS
We had tremendous success reaching out to STEM students and teachers this weekend at the Houston Energy Day Festival. We’ve already started our planning for next year’s event and greatly look forward to the opportunity to participate.
Energy Day was a great event, and my son and I had a great time as well!
I wanted to extend my sincerest thanks to each of you for putting on such an impactful event for the community. It was truly an amazing experience to get to share our passion for energy and engineering with kids and parents.
