Energy Day 2011
An official City of Houston event, Energy Day is a public, family-friendly festival on Saturday, October 15, 2011 that celebrates and highlights the importance of energy in our daily lives. This day-long festival takes place at Hermann Square in front of City Hall in Downtown Houston, Texas. There will be energy exhibits, live music, food, contests and fun for all ages.
Geared toward K-12 students, Energy Day’s mission is to highlight and demonstrate innovation in energy and to spark the interests of our next generation in energy-related careers. Through exciting, fun and interactive formats, Energy Day will give students and their families an opportunity to learn about various forms of energy, scientific breakthroughs and technology through educational displays, demonstrations, contests and presentations.
Interactive exhibits will be focused on innovation, energy production, processes and efficiencies that will create eye opening experiences for visitors. The students will be able to touch state-of-the-art technology, interact with the experts and ask questions.
Together with our sponsors and partners, including Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Consumer Energy Alliance hopes to amplify how truly integral energy is in our daily lives while motivating, challenging and inspiring young minds to explore career paths in the energy field.
Volunteers are needed to distribute marketing materials, visit schools to talk about Energy Day and hand out flyers, and help on the day of the event.
