Weatherford will be the site of the OERB’s latest effort to encourage high school students to invest in science, technology, engineering and math.
A Community STEM Night at the Weatherford High School will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Teachers, students, and parents are encouraged to come and enjoy a night of free food and fun, interactive exhibits that highlight science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts.
Through voluntary funding from the oil and natural gas industry, the OERB works to bring Community STEM Nights to cities across Oklahoma as a way to engage our future leaders. This event will showcase how STEM concepts are used in some of our state’s largest industries. The goal is to spark students’ interest and inspire the next generation of our workforce.
Museums, state universities, and educational organizations will have exhibits, including Science Museum Oklahoma, Ag in the Classroom, and National Cowboy Museum. Activities include a photo booth, robotics, DIY Polymer Putty, and more. Free food will be provided, and there will be several chances for kids to win prizes.
