Carl Albert State College — Sallisaw recently welcomed students from Sequoyah County schools to compete in the fourth annual Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Fair.
The CASC STEM Fair was established to increase student motivation and interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The goal of the academic fair is to provide public recognition of outstanding students in Sequoyah county. The event is open to all 7th, 8th and 9th grade students in Sequoyah County schools.
“We believe this event challenges students and helps develop personal initiative,” said Jaime Henson, CASC Enrollment Management Specialist. “Education is not only the acquisition of knowledge and skills, but the dynamic lifelong process in which students use their knowledge and skills to solve problems or to attempt to answer questions their curious minds may ponder.”
The CASC STEM Fair was made possible through the generous sponsorships from The Cherokee Nation, The Sallisaw Lions Club, and the National Bank of Sallisaw.
