Since 2008, ConocoPhillips and NEED have partnered to provide teachers across the country with curriculum and training opportunities. We help teachers educate students on a wide range of topics including energy conservation and alternative energy sources.

To date, ConocoPhillips has reached over 600,000 students through the program.

We hope to be in-person again soon for our energy workshops! In the meantime, we invite you to keep an eye on the NEED event calendar for upcoming virtual energy workshops this spring!  Supplies are sent ahead of time for an engaging, hands-on experience.
