The People of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas

Fund 15 New STEM Education Labs in OKC Public Schools

The people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas continue to invest in the state¹s future by funding nearly half of the 33 new Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation STEM Centers in Oklahoma City elementary schools. These facilities will provide students with handson experiences and learning that will assist them in developing their problem-solving skills through science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Led by the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board (OERB), which sponsored 10 centers, Ascent Resources, Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy, Kimray and Reign Capital Holdings also sponsored labs, bringing the total number funded by oil and natural gas entities to 15 labs at an investment of $450,000.

The oil and natural gas industry is 100 percent committed to supporting our state¹s future leaders, said OERB Chairman Mike McDonald. The STEM Centers we funded will provide teachers with the tools they need to educate young Oklahomans about the important fields of science, technology, engineering and math, which are not only critical to our industry but to the future of our country.
