Cooperation with “Ungt Entreprenørskap” (JA – Junior Achievement) on mathematics and science
As part of ExxonMobil’s global initiative for the promotion of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, the company has cooperated with the organization JA Europe since 2010. Together we have developed a pan-European program for the purpose of motivating upper secondary pupils to opt for scientific subjects. In the US, ExxonMobil has for several years successfully run a similar project, the aim of which is to attract attention to the significance of mathematics, natural science and technological skills in our society. Ten European countries currently participate in the project.

Geoscientists from our company have contributed in the creation an educational program partly based on authentic data from one of the company’s fields in the North Sea. The pupils work on a project to be presented to ExxonMobil professionals, for which they receive an award.
