Students to solve mock energy crisis
More than 100 area high school students will take part in solving a mock energy crisis at the World Affairs Council of Houston’s Student Energy Summit on Wednesday, Feb. 9.
The event will open with a newscast, filmed by Yates High School journalism students, describing the crisis. Acting as secretary of energy, national economic advisor or vice president, students will advise the president on how best to respond. Participating schools include Westside, Memorial, Yates and Foster.
Experts from Chevron, GDF SUEZ Energy, IHS CERA and others will brief students on Mexican and Venezuelan energy and politics, transportation fuels and deep water drilling. During their deliberations, students can get help from energy experts from ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, and Ernst and Young, among others.
The World Affairs Council of Houston is one of the nation's most active public forums. In over 200 programs each year, the Council presents current information on rapidly changing international issues, political events, democracy, development and the challenges to security and prosperity.
