STEAM Zone Pelican’s Smoothie King Center

John Murray Productions, Inc. has paired up once again with the creatives at Chevron to design and fabricate the latest installation at the Pelican's Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

The interactive STEAM Zone by Chevron highlights the science, technology, engineering, art, and math of basketball with a series of hands-on exhibits. The vertical leap exhibit explains the biomechanics of the jump while allowing visitors at Pelican’s Smoothie King Center to measure their vertical leap, and the ball stacking exhibit visually communicates Keppler’s Conjecture. 

The anatomy of a basketball shoe exhibit uniquely highlights the engineering behind the basketball shoe, and the parabola display educates guests on the physics of the shot. The challenge came in designing and fabricating museum-quality exhibits in our Oakland shop, for installation in the New Orleans stadium.
