On April 18, 2018 Carl Albert State College-Sallisaw, welcomed students from Sallisaw and Muldrow Middle Schools to compete in the third annual 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 Arvest Bank. Lunch was provided by Arvest Bank/Dale Phelps.
First Place winner was Sallisaw 8th grade student Gracy Carson with her project "Bridge Busters." Second Place winner was Sallisaw 8th grade student Cash Parkerson with his project "Where will it Grow?" Third Place winners were Sallisaw 8th grade students Serena Vang and Kaly Winton with their project "Ready Set Grow!"
3 Awards of Honorable Mention were awarded to:
Muldrow 8th Grade Student Kaden Chandler for his project "700 Degrees."
Sallisaw 8th Grade Student Garraway Nance for "Don't Tick Me Off."
Sallisaw 8th Grade Student Zeke Callahan for "Beat of the Heart."
