Playing with Petroleum Kit

The Playing with Petroleum Kit can be reserved for classroom
use for a period of up to 30 days

Teachers can reserve the Playing with Petroleum Kit for a period of up to 30 days for their classroom use by attending a Project E3 Workshop, conducted by Foundation partner Offshore Energy Center. The Playing with Petroleum Kit is a FREE traveling classroom exhibit for grades K through 5. It brings hydrocarbon-based energy education to students in a multi-disciplinary format. Curriculum in the Kit is correlated to State (Texas) and National Standards.

The Foundationís goal is to help the OEC expand distribution and usage of the Kits across all of Texas. Objectives for student learning during use of the Playing with Petroleum Kit include:

  • Describe how sediments are formed and their importance
  • Describe how microfossils are important to geologists
  • Describe the importance of petroleum in our daily lives and objects made from petroleum
  • Identify how petroleum is formed and what organisms become petroleum
  • Understand the commitment of the oil industry to protecting the environment.

Teachers, administrators and local citizens interested in having a Playing with Petroleum Kit at their schools may contact Offshore Energy Center Education Director Doris Tomas at (281) 544-2435,
