A $50,000 grant from Texaco and a $25,000 grant from Enron Wind Corp. will allow high school and community college students and teachers from San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria and Bakersfield attend free weeklong summer workshops exploring issues and opportunities in the oil and renewable energy industries.
"These workshops provide a unique forum for participants to learn more about the energy industries," said Professor Masoud Mehdizadeh, program director.
The workshops are designed to give participants a better understanding of the technology and issues of energy use and conservation.
The grants will pay for participants' room and board at Cal Poly, all meals and snacks, workbooks, lab supplies, backpacks and certificates of participation.
