COME LEARN WITH US!
Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre is a regular field trip location for many schools. It is a great place for students from elementary to high school, college, and university to spend a day. Education programs are customized to your needs, so students are guaranteed to learn about Alberta’s history and sciences and discover how we find and extract one of our most precious resources.
Our education programs offer unique opportunities that most students would not have the chance to experience. Students develop connections to the oil and gas industry through these experiences by exploring a real rig, drilling beneath the earth’s surface to see oil oozing in the World’s Largest Drill Bit and traveling through a section of 42” pipeline to learn the importance of smart pigs.
This Summer the Leduc #1 is offering two interactive summer camps for children ages 6 - 12!
The Junior Roughneck camp provides a full day of hands on learning about energy science, and the oil industry.
The Junior Geoscientist camp allows children to explore the world around them as that learn about the rock cycle, fossils, and more.
Pick a date and pack a lunch – camps run from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm on 5 dates throughout the summer.
The cost per child is $40. Be sure to book early to ensure your spot!

Junior Geoscientist Camps
This is a one day course designed to familiarize non-technical personnel on the activities of the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry is essentially split into three sectors – upstream, midstream, and downstream. Attendees of this course will learn the components of the upstream sector – the exploration and production of oil and gas; the components of the midstream sector – transportation; and the components of the downstream sector – production and shipping of oil and gas to refineries or plants.
