Full Description

Technology drives the future and energy powers technology. You literally cannot have one without the other. By effects small and large, inexpensive energy is one common denominator across nearly every technology advance for over 100 years. From today’s use of over 15 terawatts per year (15 x 1012 watts), energy requirements of developing countries will increase by 1 to 2 orders of magnitude or more and efficient energy generation will be at the forefront with nearly every clean, stable energy source required to make the world work. The answers aren’t all there yet, and the welcome mat is out for people with ideas. Where do you fit in?

We have invited Conroe ISD high school students who have a technical interest and are involved in high-level Math, Science and Engineering courses to be included at our luncheon. We will have limited accommodatations for Walk-Ins, so please be sure to Preregister online.
