The state’s youngest inventors will showcase their ideas at the 30th Annual Oklahoma Student Inventors Exposition at Rose State College on Tuesday, February 26th, 2019. One hundred eighty students from grades K-12 will setup and compete for awards with their inventions intended to promote and advance the STEM initiative.
The expo is an opportunity for young Oklahoma inventors to show off their problem-solving, creative thinking, and critical thinking skills by creating inventions that solve everyday problems.
Previous winners have included the Safe-T-Desk, consisting of Kevlar-lined panels that attach to student desks. The panels were attached via Velcro and removed in the event they were needed to be used as a shield.
One of the wackiest inventions included a Remote Control Toilet Seat Warmer. Other past entries included the Trash Taxi, the Kid Tracker and the Curve Alert.
The Invention Convention will take place inside the Hudiburg Performing Arts Center on the Rose State campus. Set-up and judging will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The awards ceremony will be from 12:50 to 1:40 p.m.
