Students and staff at John Marshall High School were surprised Wednesday afternoon with a $25,000 grant to build a marine ecosystem at the school.

The grant will be used to build a hands-on “touch tank” that students can use to learn about science at the northwest Oklahoma City school, according to Devon.

The grant is an annual Science Giant award given by Devon Energy. The company awards $25,000 to a single school each year, Devon spokeswoman Cindy Allen said.

The first winner was Kaiser Elementary School, which used the grant to build an outdoor classroom, greenhouse, garden and outdoor study area. Last year, Edgemere Elementary School won the award, but the school's project has not yet been completed, Allen said.
