Science Museum Oklahoma announces Schlumberger matching grant for energy exhibit renovation
Science Museum Oklahoma has announced that Schlumberger will provide a matching grant of $90,000 to help renovate the museum’s energy exhibit, Energy Quest.
Energy Quest will feature more than 2,000 square feet of space and provide an immersive environment to explore the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) associated with energy production in Oklahoma.
Schlumberger is a worldwide provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production and processing to the oil and gas industry, a news release stated.
“Every year almost 600,000 people visit the museum, and one of the first things they see is Energy Quest. Unfortunately, the exhibit doesn’t accurately reflect the current technology of the industry, nor does it enable the level of hands-on activity our guests have come to expect,” said Sherry Marshall, president of Science Museum Oklahoma.
“Energy remains an important focus for our state and economy," Marshall said. "We are delighted that Schlumberger has provided this matching grant opportunity to help the museum raise additional funds for the Energy Quest makeover."
