The 5th Annual Aero Games allows middle and high school students to participate in hands-on competitions that involve creating and building gliders, wind-powered rockets, remote-controlled helicopters, and other wind- and aerospace-related objects.
In an effort to promote science, math, engineering, and technology (STEM) education, Google and Rogers State University have partnered together to offer a fun and interactive learning experience for students in northeast Oklahoma.
It is our mission to unite the northeast Oklahoma community, to foster an environment of creative and cooperative learning, and to inspire students to excel in these subject areas.
