Rose State College 24th Annual Oklahoma Student Inventors Exposition, also known as the “Invention Convention,” is for Feb. 19.

The competition is open to students in grades K - 12 in public, private, or parochial schools.

The competition is a brainchild of former public school teacher and Rose State College Regent Betty J.C. Wright and inventor/businessman Julian Taylor. Both wanted to provide a way for students to use their math, science and creative thinking skills to create inventions.

The purpose of the exposition for more than two decades has been to foster creativity, problem-solving, inventive thinking and ingenuity, said Wright, coordinator.

Students from all educational backgrounds may enter, Wright said.

“We like to help students release their creativity and develop inventions to serve society,” Wright said.
