High School Students Compete in Offshore Technology Challenge

The competition is related to offshore energy exploration and development.

The federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is sponsoring a competition for 152 high school students on March 31 showcasing science and technology skills related to offshore energy exploration and development, according to the agency.

(This fits the approach of the Trump administration, with the president taking steps to "unleash" American energy production, he has said.)

The competition will feature students from six Baton Rouge high schools steering remote-controlled cars across the stadium field, powered by energy initially developed by NASA.

The competition, which will take place at Tiger Stadium at Louisiana State University, is part of BSEE's efforts to promote science, technology, engineering and math education as well as engaging the future technical workforce.

This is the first time for LSU to host the event, which began as a pilot project at the University of Houston in 2016; BSEE expanded the competition this year to both LSU and Taft College in California.

The students come from West Feliciana High School, Plaquemine High School, and Arts East, Mathematics, Science, and Arts West, Starship Academy, Scotlandville Magnet High School, Lee Magnet High School, and Patrick F. Taylor Science & Technology Academy.
