These engaging traveling exhibits from the Oilfield Energy Center features six self-contained stations with curriculum-based, hands-on activities about energy and the technologies and sciences involved with the oil and gas industry.  The curriculum for each of the 24 activities is correlated to The Next Generation National Science Standards – Grades 5 - 8.  Although the MOLU is geared for 5th grade students, it is also appropriate for other age groups. 

The exhibit is transported via truck/trailer for exhibition and set up in school gymnasiums or common areas. We can accommodate 48 students per session and conduct 4 sessions per day.  Each session is 1 ½ hours long (total of 192 students per day).  Students receive a “MOLU Pass” with questions that correlate to the 24 activities on all of the 6 stations.  

Pre- and post-visit materials are provided to enhance the learning experience, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Pre/Post tests with answer key
  • Post visit – “MOLU Game”
  • Energy At Work! Career Interest Profile
  • The OEC’s “The Offshore Story” 15 minute video

The Mobile Oilfield Learning Units are available for visits to your school.  To obtain a specific quote, make your reservation, or for more details, please contact Oilfield Energy Center at 713-840-1753 or email at [email protected]
