When the Oklahoma Innovation Institute announced their annual STEM Exploratorium competition for 6th – 8th graders, Mr. Arant’s homeroom jumped at the opportunity to enter. This year, the challenge was to design a roller coaster for a marble using a strict list of supplies, such as 24 note cards, 1 cereal box, 2 paper towel rolls, 2 water bottles, 5 paper clips and 6 feet of masking tape. Each roller coaster had to meet certain design criteria to compete. The students worked diligently and did not disappoint. All six roller coasters entered Central Intermediate scored well. And, out of the 120+ roller coasters competing, one from Central Intermediate had the longest ride time while another scored perfect on aesthetics.

In addition to the competition, the kids had a great time learning about STEM jobs that are found around the Tulsa area. From Google 360° glasses to battling robots, there was plenty that captured the minds of the students.
