Consumer Energy Alliance to Host Third Energy Day Festival
Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA) third annual Energy Day Festival is quickly approaching. Scheduled for Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., this free family festival includes more than 70 interactive exhibits and demonstrations showcasing energy technology, conservation, efficiency and energy careers. This day-long festival takes place at Hermann Square in front of City Hall in Downtown Houston, Texas. Additional highlights include music, food, games, opportunities to meet energy experts and fun for all ages.
An official City of Houston event, Energy Day’s mission is to highlight and demonstrate innovation in energy and to spark the interest of our next generation in energy-related careers. A fun and interactive event, 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.
“Workforce development is key to the future of the energy industry and the Texas economy,” said David Holt, president of Consumer Energy Alliance. “Energy Day is a great way to engage young minds in the STEM and skills-based disciplines.”
In addition to the festival, CEA and its partners also host a year-long Energy Day Academic Program that helps to amplify existing academic competitions and events through a series of six unique, citywide, energy-related competitions. The program helps to motivate, challenge and inspire young minds to seek careers in science and technology. More than 85 teachers and students will receive a monetary award and recognition at the Energy Day Festival.
