CCS STEM Camp at Southern University

2023 STEM Camps

More than 500 students from 55 school districts across Texas and Louisiana participated in the 2023 Tapia Center STEM camps hosted by Rice and Southern Universities. Sponsored by ExxonMobil, the camp’s curriculum was specifically designed by Rice University to educate future energy and community leaders about the importance of effective carbon management through hands-on project-based learning, team building and problem solving. Students presented on what carbon dioxide is and where it comes from, why Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is important, and how carbon dioxide can be stored in underground reservoirs.

Creating An Environment of Education

In partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is working to educate area youth about environmental conservation. For example, Tara Bazille, a Baton Rouge Refinery employee and volunteer, helps lead tours and events at the wildlife refuge as part of the Lands for Learning initiative. From understanding the health of an ecosystem to planting more than 100 trees every year, the program is inspiring younger generations to find environmental solutions for the future.
