Will your company support public education at the local level?


Local school districts want volunteers to meet and speak to students about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).  Educators ask companies in the Houston area to send one or more representatives, with suitable poster sessions or table displays. This is a great opportunity for your company to show their support for STEM at the local level and to engage with the public.  

HGS also wishes to find sufficient volunteers to staff a table at these events.  If you would like to help HGS at any of these events, contact Steve Johansen geosjjohansen@gmail.com
