Aero Games

Aero Games is a competition for middle and high school students to participate in hands-on competitions involving 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 RSU have come together to offer a fun, interactive learning experience for Oklahoma students.

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.
