Follow the Science

FOLLOW THE SCIENCE to the Petroleum Museum as we celebrate our 47th Birthday on Thursday, September 22, 2022. Leave your tiny lab assistants at home, throw on a lab coat, and make sure that pocket protector is in place because we will be following the science by performing explosive scientific experiments. Paint with a robot, light bubbles on fire, experience an elephant toothpaste reaction, design your own fire coaster, and much, much more!

The evening will include Gastronomical delights catered by Midland Meat Market, spirited Libations concocted by Mix it Up, hands-on Science Experiments and Exhibitions, and a Silent Auction featuring out-of-the-ordinary scientific items.

Your support helps us offer quality learning opportunities to visitors of all ages, showcase exceptional exhibits, and serve as an advocate for the energy industry.

You won’t want to miss this evening of hands-on exploration and experimentation. So, let your inner geek out, put on your classiest cocktail attire with a scientific twist, and see where the science leads you!
