Wiess Energy Hall Online

These online courses cover an array of energy topics, starting with an overview of energy and continuing with the lifecycle of hydrocarbons—from formation through exploration and discovery, drilling, production, refining, transportation and end users. The course series concludes with a survey of alternative energy sources, including renewables, alternative fuels, nuclear fusion and more.

Please help us to preserve our collections for the next generation by not using flash when taking personal pictures at HMNS and at HMNS Sugar Land. Exposure to strong lights over time causes fading and deterioration of most artifacts and specimens.

Flash photography is ONLY allowed in the Grand Hall and the rainforest of the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

Selfie sticks are not allowed anywhere in HMNS, HMNS Sugar Land and the George Observatory.

For press and any commercial photo shoots, please contact the Public Relations dept.
