Meet the STEM Kids!

Hi! We’re Nico and Naomi, and we love science, asking questions, and solving problems. In our classes, we do fun experiments, build things, and learn a lot about things like rocks, animals, and robots! By understanding how things work, like why the sky is blue or how to code video games, we can grow up to be inventors or even astronauts!

We really like the STEM boxes at CEEF Summer Camps and playing with all the fun exhibits with our friends at the free Energy Day Festival. Hopefully, we’ll see you at one – or both!

Upcoming Events

Join CEEF at one of our upcoming student events, where young minds can explore the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)!

Children will uncover the excitement of discovery and innovation through interactive workshops, engaging demonstrations, and hands-on activities. These events aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and inventors, empowering them to shape the future of energy through knowledge and creativity.

Energy Day

Sam Houston Park 1000 Babgy Street, Houston, United States

Energy Day, a FREE family festival, is not just a day of learning, but also a day of interactive engagement. It brings together Houston-area K-12 students, educators, and their families […]

What They Say

“Thank you to the Consumer Energy Alliance and the Consumer Energy Education Foundation for organizing Energy Day 2023 – the largest free STEM festival in the greater Houston area. I want to thank them because, since 2011, they’ve given out more than $170K in award monies to our students and teachers.”

Sylvester Turner
Former Mayor of the City of Houston

“We are here to celebrate the Houston energy industry and learn about STEM. It’s something I wish I had paid more attention to when I was a student.”

Dana Tyson
Radio Talk Show Host, Sunny 99.1

“What I love about this event is that it is hands-on. She can touch it, feel it, see it, and do it herself! A lot of your higher-paying jobs are math and science-based. I want her to have a bright future so she can take care of herself and make a good living.”

R. McLeod
Parent

“Students are enjoying the experience of having something like energy be fun and relatable. It is a great way to learn outside of the school.”

Matt Thomas
Houston Rockets PA Announcer

“Energy Day started my spark for engineering. I remember the experiment of how oil and gas were separated and processed. It was so awesome to see it.”

Kimberly Ventura
ATM Engineering

“I have 2 small children, and I think this is a great opportunity for them to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. I have never seen this before, but it is really cool.”

T. Pierce
Parent

The Issue

Less than one-third of teens and young adults listed a role in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics fields as their first-choice career, even though a sizable majority of them are interested in STEM occupations, according to a new survey from Gallup and the Walton Family Foundation.

Energizing STEM Education

Bringing STEM to students early on isn’t just about putting a computer in front of them or asking them to read e-books instead of hardcovers. Helping students to pursue STEM educational tracks is about using creative lesson plans, events, and positive, memorable moments that allow for different learning methodologies that can be utilized while exploring augmented and virtual reality, the cloud and its capabilities, computer programming, and more to help students develop vital skills for the future workforce in a way that is memorable and fun for them.

Energy Day

Each year, CEEF holds various summer camps and participates in STEM competitions, culminating in our end-of-year capstone event, Energy Day. This FREE family festival welcomes students of all ages and their families to participate in various demonstrations and activities that showcase what STEM careers could look like through experiments exploring various STEM academic tracts. In addition to the fun experiments and being out with friends, there is music, food, and prizes for STEM competition participants. We hope you will join us this year on October 19 in Houston at Sam Houston Park downtown!
