Theme for 2018: Building for the Future

Our country is experiencing an economic renaissance with record stock prices, low unemployment and rising wages. Additionally, the recently signed Federal Tax Reform Bill will result in increased investment in the United States. The Tulsa Post of SAME will examine how engineers, planners and scientists are building for the future here in the TEXOMA region with new infrastructure projects and rehabilitations/modifications of existing projects to capitalize on and further fuel this economic revival.

 

Congratulations to Miro Kurka on becoming a member of the SAME Academy of Fellows and Deputy RVP for the TEXOMA Region with focus on OK, AR, and North Texas!

February is MATHCOUNTS Season

The 2018 MATHCOUNTS Season begins in early February!  

Since 1983, the Oklahoma Engineering Foundation has hosted the Oklahoma MATHCOUNTS program. Pooling resources from engineering and other STEM-minded industries, OEF has been able to engage over 15,000 students in this upper-level middle school math competition. Countless thousands have benefited from the MATHCOUNTS materials made available to every middle school in Oklahoma.

The competitions this year are:

  • East Central Regional, University of Tulsa – February 3
  • Central Oklahoma Regional, University of Central Oklahoma – February 10
  • Eastern Oklahoma Regional, Eastern Oklahoma State College, Wilburton – February 10
  • Northwestern Regional, Northwestern Oklahoma State College, Alva – February 17
  • Southwestern Regional, Great Plains Technology Center – February 24
  • State, University of Oklahoma – March 3

Volunteers are needed to fill two roles for each competition; proctor and grader.  Proctors are in the testing room and watch over the students as they take the exams.  Graders work to score all of the students’ exams.  Both roles are rewarding and fun, and volunteers will be fed lunch, and receive a great t-shirt for volunteering! 

If you are interested in signing up, please do so HERE

If you have any questions, please contact Diana Bittle, Oklahoma MATHCOUNTS State Co-Chair
