2023 STEM Camps

More than 500 students from 55 school districts across Texas and Louisiana participated in the 2023 Tapia Center STEM camps hosted by Rice and Southern Universities. Sponsored by ExxonMobil, the camp’s curriculum was specifically designed by Rice University to educate future energy and community leaders about the importance of effective carbon management through hands-on project-based learning, team building and problem solving. Students presented on what carbon dioxide is and where it comes from, why Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is important, and how carbon dioxide can be stored in underground reservoirs.
