The competition is on! Madison and Central students will be vying for the cup awarded to the school with more students attending the Second Annual “Hands On, Minds On Bartlesville Math and Science Night” event on Monday, November 6, 2017 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at Madison Middle School at 5900 Baylor Drive.

The free event is open to all area middle school students, offering hands-on STEM stations, free food, and prizes. No sign-ups are necessary. Last year, over 200 students, along with parents and siblings, attended the event.

Sponsored and facilitated by ConocoPhillips and the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board (OERB), the Oklahoma State University chapter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the College of Engineering, Architecture & Technology, the event aims to help area youngsters from grades six through eight learn more about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields as well as career options in the energy industry.

This event supports ConocoPhillips’ global commitment to help students excel in math, graduate high school and succeed in college.

While the inaugural event proved to be very popular, this year’s “Hands On, Minds On” event promises to be bigger and better. The special “Math and Science Night” offers interactive fun as students explore several activity stations focused on various subjects, such as coding, seismic activity, acid tests, stream tables and rock samples. But this year’s event will offer even more activity stations than its predecessor and more space will be available in which interested youngsters can gather and explore.

As was the case last year, math- and engineering-themed games will be available, with prizes awarded at the end of the night. Complimentary pizza and beverages will be provided as well. Volunteers from ConocoPhillips, OSU’s AAPG chapter and the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board will be on hand to help run the stations, guide students and offer insight.
