This Week in Education

By Natalia Bayona

Oil and gas professionals, like the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC), made close ties with Earth Task Force, an environmental group at Boulder’s New Vista High, last year. To supplement Colorado’s energy-intensive curriculum, school officials are increasing participation with COGCC, fracking geologists and bioengineering students.

Boulder Public Library educated locals about their innovative digital resources last week as part of a National “Outside the Lines” Campaign. Librarians rode “book bikes” to Alfalfa’s Market equipped with free books and Wi-Fi to link patrons to Hoopla, the library’s vendor of free movies, magazine subscriptions, and streaming music.

The Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts will soon welcome local chefs, like Eric Skokan of Black Cat Bistro in Boulder, to instruct at the institute. In celebration of this expansion and a visit by Master Chef Auguste Escoffier’s grandson Michel, Boulder City Council deemed Oct. 9 “Escoffier Day.”
