Robotics includes an introduction to robotics, construction of robots, programming via RobotC, and participating in challenges. Competitions allow students to compete in building robots, and clubs, such as the Schlumberger Robotics Club, help students learn about robotic programming. In addition, students learn about Liquid Robotics, a Schlumberger company that is building an ocean sensor network intended to help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges and gain valuable insights into the marine environment.
Computer Science introduces students to computer-based programing and university partnerships. Some examples are through SEED workshops and Schlumberger coding clubs, where we introduce programming to students as early as the second grade with an MIT-based platform that students call “SCRATCH.” Schlumberger also donates Petrel resources to high schools and universities around the world to encourage more students to take an interest in computer science.
Energy Education is promoted through partnerships with American Geosciences Institute, Society of Petroleum Engineers, National Energy Education Development, and the Offshore Energy Center. Workshops and educational programs with these partners help students and teachers understand the highly technical skillset needed to work in the energy industry.
