Students at OSU camp learn about energy, communications

STILLWATER, Okla. — A group of high school students from throughout Oklahoma and the country met at Oklahoma State University this week for the school’s inaugural energy camp.

The three-day program at OSU’s School of Media & Strategic Communications provided an opportunity for high school students interested in science and communications to learn about the various forms of energy developed and used throughout the state.

The students also learned about the challenges involved in effectively communicating complicated and technical subjects such as oil production and power generation and the politics involved in the various aspects of the energy industry.

Among other events during the three-day camp, the students toured the offices of Central Rural Electric Cooperative in Stillwater and learned from OSU professors who discussed how oil and natural gas are formed and recovered.
