Many grateful thanks to The Boeing Company for its steadfast support to strengthen OSSM’s ability to provide rigorous STEM curriculum for high school juniors and seniors, both at our main residential campus in Oklahoma City and our Regional Center programs in rural areas of the state such as Enid and Altus. (OSSM also operates Regional Centers in Drumright, Muskogee, Poteau, Tahlequah/Stilwell, and Wayne and a Virtual Regional Center that can provide advanced STEM courses, with hands-on face-to-face labs, to any school or student in the state free of charge.)
Boeing has recently granted $75,000 for OSSM to grow its Virtual Regional Center program, particularly to serve students in the state’s largest school district, Oklahoma City Public Schools!
“We’re excited to partner with OSSM to deliver advanced physics courses to high school students in Oklahoma City Public Schools,” said Kristin Holland, community investor, Boeing Oklahoma City. “OSSM’s innovative programs provide a strong foundation in STEM concepts and offer Oklahoma City Public Schools an affordable way to make these courses available to additional students.”
More than a third of graduates from OSSM become engineers. With strong support of partners like Boeing, OSSM is working to make advanced STEM curriculum available to all Oklahoma students, whether at our residential campus, by partnering with their home high school, or with the student directly. Access to continuing academic challenge in STEM throughout high school will allow students to develop their math and science interests and skills to the greatest degree possible in high school and beyond.
Thank you, Boeing!
