Science Saturday programs, held in Windows on the World Theater on the first Saturday of every month, highlight the vast world of scientific research and allow attendees to interact with experts in a variety of scientific fields. All are welcome to attend.

Primary and secondary oil recovery methods leave as much as 60% of the oil unproduced and stranded in the reservoir.  Microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR), is a biologically-based technology that utilizes the unique ability of biological factories (microbes) to recover significant volumes of stranded oil.
