We interpret seismic images to identify potential oil and gas deposits. We plan deepwater drilling operations targeting prospects located more than three miles below the ocean floor. We study the rocks we bring to the surface to better understand where oil and gas might be found. Being at the forefront of science and technology is how we play our part in meeting the world’s energy needs and how we create value for stakeholders. The shortage of people with training in the STEM disciplines poses a potential long-term threat to many businesses, including our own. In 2015, Kosmos announced a partnership with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to face this challenge head-on by helping Dallas teachers develop their ability to train and inspire young people in the STEM disciplines. The Kosmos Energy STEM Teacher Institute is an innovative program designed to improve the quality of formal science instruction for participating kindergarten through 12th grade teachers, and increase interest and engagement among their students in STEM subjects. Through this program, teachers enjoy professional development opportunities and access to the Perot Museum’s network of educators and vast resources. The program, which started in the spring of 2015, involves a formal application process for teachers to ensure they are invested and committed. Chosen teachers from across the Dallas/Fort Worth area attend a week-long Summer Academy, where they are grouped according to their level of comfort and expertise in sciences – Pre-Service Teachers, Novice Teachers, Advanced Teachers, and Mentor Teachers – rather than by grade level. Instruction continues through the academic year with five professional development sessions held on weekends twice a month, for which they receive continuing education credits required for teachers by the Texas Education Agency. The teachers are also mentored throughout the academic year. The program is expected to impact more than 4,800 students during the 2015-2016 school year. Expected outcomes include significantly increased knowledge of science among teachers, competence, confidence, creativity, and consistency in science instruction. In addition, the program will enhance teachers’ ability to encourage students to pursue careers in fields related to science, technology, engineering, and math. 4,800+ STUDENTS WILL BE IMPACTED DURING THE 2015-16 SCHOOL YEAR During the Kosmos Energy STEM Teacher Institute summer academy, Dallas/Fort Worth area teachers receive specialized training from the Perot Museum’s network of educators.
