Mobile Oilfield Unit
In Spring 2020, TXOGA teamed up with the Oilfield Energy Center to bring the Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit (MOLU) to 50 schools across the State of Texas. The MOLU is a $1.2 million exhibit that features six self-contained learning stations with curriculum-based, hands-on activities about the energy, technologies and sciences involved with the oil and natural gas industry.
TXOGA is hoping to host another MOLU Tour, bringing it to schools all across Texas in Fall 2022. See below how you can be involved.
