Engineering Day 2008
a BIG Success
Over 400 teachers and students from 18 Kern County High Schools and special programs descended on the
Kern County Museum for the eighth annual Engineering Day (February 21, 2008). This event is sponsored
by the Society of Petroleum Engineers, San Joaquin Valley Section, in cooperation with the Kern County Su-
perintendent of Schools – School to Career program and with the support of several industry sponsors. It falls
within National Engineers Week. This years event saw over 50% growth from the previous year which caused
organizers to turn away a couple organizations due to capacity limitations.
Juniors and Seniors from area high schools who were on a math and science track were invited to attend the
day-long event at the museum. The day was structured much like a professional conference would transpire.
In the main museum building there were exhibits set up by engineering related companies or schools. In a
large tent on the museum grounds several speakers related their experiences in their careers, why they thought
engineering was a good profession to pursue and the kinds of things students could do now to prepare. Next
the students were treated to a tour of “Black Gold – The Oil Experience,” a world class oil exhibit built on the
museum grounds 5 years ago with industry donations. Finally, everyone was treated to the legendary Halli-
burton Bar-B-Que lunch, graciously donated by Halliburton.
