Five of the projects were energy efficient buildings. The features included raised roofs and ventilators, fans and lights that were controlled by the GoGo Board based on sensor inputs, use of solar cells to charge batteries and capacitors, and capturing rainwater to pump it over the roof for cooling.

A sixth project was an Energy Playground where a merry-go-round and a seesaw were used to generate electricity. We were also treated to a MicroWorlds animation of the sinking of the Titanic.
A two-day Facilitator Workshop preceded the five-day Collaborative Workshop for teachers and students .The Facilitator Workshop followed the same sequence as the Collaborative Workshop in Malaysia, but shorter. This allowed the facilitators to model the workshop they were about to lead. The steps were:
Workshop Fluid density/Viscosity Theory and Experiment. Participants 20 Students (Grades 5th and 6th) Teachers: 13, all available at the moment at school.
We presented three experiments regarding to the preparation of the well. Our team explained all of the procedures in order to get the well ready to run a logging tool.
Event: Sport for a Healthy Life. Participants 2 Schlumberger SEED Volunteers (Alexander Garcia and Monica Medina). 60 Students and 1 Teacher.
As part of the SEED activities scheduled for this month, on September 17, 2009, we visited the “15 de Septiembre” School located in La Libertad, Petén, Guatemala.
