The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), in collaboration with many other geoscience societies, invites geoscientists to come to Washington D.C. for the annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Days (GEO-CVD) on September 10-11, 2019. Decision makers need to hear from geoscientists. Join us and many of your colleagues for this two-day event uniting geoscience researchers, professionals, students, educators, engineers, and executives in Washington D.C. to raise visibility and support for the geosciences!

· January 19, 2019 – STEM Session: Geological History of the Earth led by Amrit Cooblal. North based students were taught the history of the earth using concepts of plate tectonics and continental drift. 25 students attended.
· January 26, 2019 – STEM Session: Well Log Correlation led by Amrit Cooblal and Charis Mungal (Ministry of Energy). South based students carried on from their session on well logs by learning correlation and applying knowledge of stratigraphy & structural geology. 25 students attended.
· March 9, 2019 – STEM Session: Complete Subsurface Mapping Project. South based students integrated all they have learnt and correlated wells, picked reservoir tops, produced contoured structure maps, petrophysical calculations and oil volumetrics. Presented by Amrit Cooblal, Krystal Ramdin & Therese Steele. 25 students attended.
· March 16, 2019 – STEM Session: Petroleum Engineering. North based students learnt about all the different aspects of drilling a well, from spud to completion, and were also provided with a look at Trinidad's Natural Gas Industry, its importance, and the key players in the industry. They also took part in exercises calculating flow rate and the necessity of flow assurance. Presented by Zain Ramsingh (AAPG YPTT Treasurer) & Aidan Rajpaul (DeNovo Energy). 25 students attended.
· March 23, 2019 – STEM Session: Petroleum Geology Final Review. South based students were given a final recap and were quizzed on all they learnt in this term about petroleum geology and the industry workflow. Presented by Amrit Cooblal & Krystal Ramdin. 25 students attended.
