Summer Camp Feedback

Miles Segura:
This Camp was the best one I have been to.

Morgan Romero:
I loved everything about the camp and I’m glad I had the opportunity to experience it!

Jeremy Murphy:
I enjoyed this camp! I learned a lot and definitely want to go in engineering.

Jasmine Antony:
Thank you so much for sponsoring our summer camp! It has changed the way I see the engineering field. I have a clearer idea of what I want to study in college now like Petroleum or Chemical engineering.

David Hsu:
Continue the Camp for as long as possible.

Whitney Ngo:
I didn’t expect that much out of this summer program but you guys went above and beyond!

Darrin Williams:
I’m more motivated to explore alternate energies because the surface information given to the public seems flawed

Wesley Adrianson:
The camp made me become very interested in pursuing a career in energy in the future

Sean Leonard:
We learned both positive and inspirational information about our world’s resources

Maya Martirossyan:
Before this camp I had a completely different conception of our future in energy, and now I feel very knowledgeable and practical regarding energy

Armin Abedi:
I really learned a whole lot and I hope maybe one day I can help you guys out in the effort of finding the energy of the future

Bobby Lowrie:
Thank you Chevron for opening my eyes to the fact that energy is not merely a concept you learn about in school, but that it is something that affects us every day of our life.

Jennifer liu:
It was truly an enlightening experience.

Roberto Auchterlonie Camino Nuevo High School:
I would recommend this experience to my students and co-workers strongly

Beth Goodman Glenelg Country School:
Excited to share what I learned

Brian Bliss Poly High School:
I found this camp a brilliant idea; it’s shown me many of the thought processes of companies.

Alfonso Castellanos North High School:
Before, I only viewed energy resources through a scientific perspective, but now, I am able to perceive energy resources from a political and economic mindset. I met people of my age from all over the United States, which broadened my views of the world. The camp has strengthened my passion for math and science.

Sean Lee Torance High School:
This program was an eye opener and helped build understanding about energy resources in a much greater way.

Max Morrison Pacific Palisades High School:
The awareness that I have about the variety of energy sources and benefits of each type has increased. Now I think about where my power comes form.

Sonal Rangnekar Claremont High School:
The camp really cemented my ideas for my future in college—both major and location (USC!)

Katie Torigoe Waiakea High School:
I was pretty media-influenced and I had a stunted view of energy. I feel enlightened now! It’s exciting. It was a very enriching experience and I feel like I have a lot more direction for my future now.
