Super Saturday Busy for High School/Middle School Students on Southeastern Campus

An estimated 1,000-plus middle school and high school students from Oklahoma and north Texas were on the Southeastern campus for a variety of events during Super Saturday.

More than 100 high school seniors participated in “Scholarship Competition Day’’ at the University. This is a process in which students seek admission and scholarships in the Honors Program or President’s Leadership Class at Southeastern. The students participate in interviews and attend informational sessions.

Parents are also invited to attend the sessions and participate in campus tours.

Faculty members from Southeastern’s academic departments were also available to provide information about their programs. Also on that day, Southeastern hosted the Oklahoma Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament for the second consecutive year.

Some 350 middle and high school students from public and private schools across Oklahoma and north Texas competed on 2-4 person teams in one or more of 46 events that included most areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

Southeastern faculty and staff from the Department of Aviation Sciences, Biological Science, Chemistry, Computer and Physical Sciences volunteered to design events, write and grade exams and provide support to make this event happen.

In addition, 20 Southeastern student volunteers signed up to help with the competition.

Participating schools are Putnam City West HS (High School); Putnam City HS; Prestonwood Christian Academy, Plano, Texas; Casady School, Oklahoma City; Sequoyah HS, Claremore; Capps MS (Middle School), Oklahoma City; Norman North HS; Jenks HS; Calumet Junior High; Calumet HS; Whittier MS, Norman; Oneta Ridge MS, Broken Arrow; Piedmont MS; Central MS,Bartlesville; and Kenneth Cooper MS, Oklahoma City.
