The energy business has suffered several boom and bust cycles
of the past few decades due to the fluctuating price of oil.
This has produced an uneven age distribution within the
industry, with many of the longer term workers getting ready to
retire. The Futures in Energy program was established to
introduce high school juniors and seniors to the oil and gas
business and encourage them to think about careers in this
field. The program takes students from outcrops to drilling rigs
giving them an opportunity to experience many aspects of the
industry. Futures in Energy will take place at the Colorado School of Mines on June
2014 with openings for 20 students.
