November 16 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
K-12 students are invited to apply to compete in TRSA’s first Innovation Fair sponsored by the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation. Students will brainstorm, research, and propose solutions to real world problems under the guidance of local STEM professionals.
STEM is the fabric of innovation. The engaging crossroads of science, engineering, technology, and mathematics call our students to wonder, create, imagine and design.
Consider an Oklahoma in which the arc of our students’ futures is carved by the greatness of the dream in their hearts rather than their zip codes.
Imagine Green Country – a bold new frontier of innovation in which every girl and every boy are empowered to chart their own courses. Think about northeastern Oklahoma – driven by a generous “can do ” spirit – building broad, deep and innovative STEM pathways for our children to access high impact careers. Dare to dream of Tulsa serving as a national exemplar in inspiring and engaging tomorrow’s innovators.
The future of citizens of Green Country, of Oklahoma, and indeed our nation rests on our successful passing of the innovation baton to the next generation of dreamers. STEM education is the baton we must pass and encourage our students to sprint!
