I want to be a volunteer...

After researching ways Houston might implement different sources of energy in the year 2050, students will have the opportunity to showcase their findings and explain how their ideas could benefit the city’s economy, environment and people.

Volunteers help with general tasks, be judges or participate as a career panelist. No prior experience is necessary, but the final deadline to register as a volunteer is May 1st! Here are some additional details:

CHECK-IN / GENERAL:

Volunteers to help with set-up and tear-down, check-in student teams, direct the teams during the event to ensure they are in the correct places at the correct times, and provide general assistance to the Houston: Energy City of the Future 2050 leadership team.

SCALE MODEL and POWERPOINT / PSA JUDGES:

Judges engage with students by asking pertinent questions about their projects, and assign scores to all participating student teams using provided rubrics. Volunteers can sign up for one or both time slots.

Webinar-based training will be provided and judges will have the opportunity to go through a brief orientation on the event day to refresh this information.

CAREER PANELISTS:

Energetic professionals with backgrounds in engineering, computer sciences, business, arts and humanities, public services, healthcare, or other areas are needed to share their stories, professional expertise, educational experiences and life lessons. The career panel will consist of a moderated portion followed by an interactive component where panelists will have the opportunity to answer student questions.
