Energy 101

The Houston Museum of Natural Science's Wiess Energy Hall is one of the nation's most sophisticated and comprehensive energy exhibits.

And thanks to our online exhibit, Energy 101, you can take advantage of all the resources of Wiess on-the-go and engage with interactive learning methods that are both fun and informative.

Energy 101 is anything but rote classroom exercise. You’ll explore how scientific concepts are applied and learn about advanced technology in the oil-and-gas industry. Learn about one of Houston's most booming and historically influential businesses by understanding the processes of energy development, including about how oil and natural gas are formed and the ways in which various types of energy are used.
