Student Session Information

Student Session Information
The 2019 Energy Generation Conference student program is taking place on January 30 and 31, 2019 at the Bismarck Event Center.  This annual event features several hands-on activities related to the energy industry, while giving students from 7th to 12th grade a chance to see what career opportunities relate to the industry and how they can begin their energy career. The events on both days are the same; students need attend only one day.

Students attending will learn about the steps involved in generating electricity- whether through traditional fuel sources such as coal and natural gas, or renewable alternatives like solar and wind.  They’ll follow the process of generation from the coal mines to the transmission lines, and learn about the skills needed for careers along the way.  Students will also have the chance to learn from men and women in the industry and discover how they can become qualified employees in the future.

This year’s student program again involves numerous hands-on activities relating to power generation, transmission, mechanics, mining, and more.  Students will also be taken on guided tours of the vendor area, where they can meet with industry representatives and learn about career opportunities.  The event is free to students, and lunch is provided, but space is limited.  Please consider bringing students who may be interested in learning about exciting career opportunities in the energy industry in North Dakota!
