Westside High School
By: Alejandro Venegas, Grade 10
The energy institute at Westside has had many exciting events this year. In August the freshman participated in a team building engineering activity by Adventure Alliance. It was a great experience and so much fun! In September, sophomores and freshman saw Lyle Henderson present about the importance of the value chain in the industry. It was very interesting and we gained quite a bit of knowledge. Next was PetroChallenge, where sophomores competed with other academy students. It was quite the learning experience, but very fun and exciting. In October, seniors shared their externship experiences at the parent meeting. The upperclassmen also visited Texas A&M to get a taste of college life and start thinking about college options. It has been a busy semester and we are having a wonderful year. For Energy Day, we brought out a Shell Eco Marathon car to display and had a fun time sharing our school project with the public and answering questions about our program. We are looking forward to a good year.
