SPE’s Energy4me program values the role teachers and energy professionals play in educating young people about the importance of energy. Energy4me program is designed to make an impact with website resources, teacher development and speaker programs www.energy4me.org The program recognizes the need to provide factual non-biased information that can be easily used in classrooms around the globe. The objective of the Energy4Me Alexandria University program is to educate students age 8 to 18 about the energy industry, and engage them at a young age in order to encourage further studies in math and science to ensure that Egypt’s future workforce, servicing the Oil & Gas industry, consists of an Egyptian National majority
Energy4me Alexandria Background
Since the day energy4me Alexandria was launched and our team which consists of a group of very inspiring & intellectual instructors engineering students with the leader: Marwan Essam and then followed by the leader- and the current one - Shereen Hany , insisted on one aim which is getting the largest number of school students (8-18years) to the field of energy in a different exciting way and to open their minds to the world greatest current concern which is the renewable sources of energy , so our curriculum includes a number of marvelous sessions covering all the topics about the renewable and non-renewable sources of energy and because practical experiments have its huge impact on children so we provide them a lot of funny experiments that bring our sessions to the real life in an interesting way , and we are still working on getting our dream to more light
