Elementary students who have completed second through fifth grades had the opportunity to engage in hands-on math and science activities with faculty at Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Math and Science Academy.
These students were able to participate in fun and engaging activities designed to help build math and science skills. The academy took place on Friday mornings in June at Northwestern-Alva in the Student Center and Science buildings. The group finished with car races in the Student Center Ballroom on campus.
Elementary students who participated included Isaac Anton, Sage Baird, Asia Blackledge, Donivan Bryant, Aubrey Bryant, Jordan Carpenter, Scott Church, Emma Eckhardt, Eloy Estrada, Sam Garrett Jr., Graham Goss, Avery Goss, Parker Grimsley, Whitney Hanks, Tucker Hannaford, Paisley Jackson, Skyler Longhurst, Gavin Lowenstein, Lucas Maharry, Elim Meeker, Aden Moreno, Kynlee Murrow, Dayton Murry, Zachary Nickels, Hope Olsen, Dominic Olson, Jordan Pannell, Matthew Pannell, Tatum Ricke, Trendon Ricke, Pedro Rodriquez, Taytum Schlarb, Conner Shafer, Cooper Shafer, Payton Smith, Hunter Stauffer, Brooklyn Stewart, Demy Stewart, Jadyn Welsh and Skyler Wickham.
Math and Science Academy is organized by Northwestern faculty members Dr. Sheila Brintnall, Dr. Tim Maharry, Dr. Steven Maier, Keenan Meeker, Dr. Aaron Place, Dr. Jenny Sattler and Dr. Mary Riegel.
Northwestern students who helped included Derek Blow, Willow Gahr, Madeline McIntrye and Chloe Nutley.
Others who helped with the activities included Cindy Goss, Emma Place and Leah Maier.
This free program is co-sponsored by Northwestern’s Departments of Mathematics and Natural Science and the Beisel, Fellers and Fisher Endowments as a way for Northwestern to give back to the community and support STEM development of elementary students.
