The people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas have selected two schools to receive a grant for their science and math programs.
Through the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board, the industry partnered with both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University to donate $10 for every point they scored during the regular football season as a continued commitment to investing in the future of our state.
Anadarko Public Schools was the winner of the grant for OU, which was 461 points for a total amount of $4,610. They plan to use the money to purchase a 3-D printer.
“We will use the 3-D printer to improve learning, skills development and increase student engagement with their subject matter. It sparks greater creativity and collaboration in solving problems,” said Anadarko Middle School teacher Kim Hancock.
Drummond Public Schools will receive the money from OSU’s season, which was a total of 382 points with the amount rounded up to $4,000. The money will be used to purchase robotics and coding equipment.
“We believe these robotic items will enrich their curriculum and be of great value to all our students on their road to becoming proficient as 21st-Century learners,” said Drummond STEM Coordinator Karla Johnson.
