Energy Days 2015 were held from March 10-12 with the help of 170+ volunteers. This three-day annual event is designated for Bartlesville area fifth grade students to help foster an interest in the science and technology of energy through demonstrations and activities. This year, 19 schools attended the event with almost 1000 students. A big thank you to all volunteers for making Energy Days a great success!

Over 170 volunteers from Phillips 66, ConocoPhillips, CPChem and retirees from the companies are required to make this a successful and educational event. The activities provide the students an introduction to the science of petroleum from production through the final products. Alternative energy, safety and remediation aspects of the industry are also highlighted.
