This year's annual "Strike for STEM" bowling competition benefiting Core Element was held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at Mid-City Rock 'n Bowl. Schlumberger was naming sponsor of the event and once again API-Delta participated as a lane sponsor. Other oil industry participants were SPE-Delta, OCSBBS, LLOG Exploration, COPAS, Women's Energy Network, and Southeast Geophysical Society. Thanks to sponsorships, the event raised $34,300 and had 225 attendees!
Core Element's focus is to provide teachers with the tools and training to create interactive, discovery-based education for students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. The purpose is to fundamentally change K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education in this community.
The event included bowling, food, drink, and music provided by The WiseGuys.
Everyone had a great time while supporting a great cause. Schlumberger has already generously committed to be the naming sponsor for next year's event!. More information and future ticket sales can be found at: www.core4kids.or.
