Schlumberger Engineers Have Fun Helping Kids in Houston

This team of engineers worked as a team, went to other teams for answers, when one team finished they offered their assistance to one another, true teamwork going on here. Bulent was one of the senior Managers and a designated parts person. He watched as the teams solved the clues to earn the bike parts. The whole time, he kept smiling as he watched the behavior changes in his team. “This was very eye-opening,” he said.

When the groups found out that the children were coming to receive the bikes from them directly they were so surprised. Some got a little emotional and said this was so worth it to see the look on the kids’ faces. Another helped a girl ride her new bike around the room.
