Over 700 middle school students enjoyed Math and Science Night

posted Nov 13, 2017, 11:01 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Nov 13, 2017, 11:01 AM ]


More than 700 area students took part in the second annual “Hands On, Minds On Bartlesville Math and Science Night” event on Monday evening, Nov. 6 at Madison Middle School. Over 500 of those students came from Bartlesville's Madison and Central Middle Schools.

The goal of “Hands On, Minds On” was to help area youngsters from grades six through eight learn more about the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields of study as well as career options in the energy industry. This year’s event drew more than twice the number of students than last year's inaugural event. “Hands On, Minds On” was sponsored and facilitated by ConocoPhillips and the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board (OERB), the Oklahoma State University chapter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the OSU College of Engineering. The event was hosted by Madison Middle School with extensive support from school staff, coordinated by Science Building Coordinator Theresa Miller and Principal Joey Eidson.

“Hands On, Minds On” was free and open to middle school-aged students from throughout Bartlesville and the surrounding areas. Attending were students from both public and private schools, including Bartlesville’s Madison and Central middle schools, St. John Catholic School, Wesleyan Christian School, and schools in Dewey and Nowata. Home school students were on hand as well. Including the adults and siblings of the middle school students, the event attracted over 1,200 attendees.

“We were pleased to have the opportunity to assist in hosting this vital and rewarding event,” said ConocoPhillips’ Mark Headley, manager of Real Estate and Facilities Services. “ConocoPhillips has a longstanding commitment to help students excel in math, graduate high school and succeed in college. ‘Hands On, Minds On’ offered some outstanding educational opportunities for our area students.”

“Hands On, Minds On” featured interactive fun as students explored over 30 activity stations focused on various subjects, such as coding, seismic activity, chemistry and geology. Math- and engineering-themed games were available, with prizes awarded to top performers.

“We appreciate all of those who sponsored and facilitated such a great event at our school,” said Madison principal Joey Eidson. “The students really enjoyed taking part while learning more about math and science in a fun environment.”

Complimentary pizza and beverages were provided by Truity Credit Union. More than 160 volunteers from ConocoPhillips, the OERB, the OSU chapter of the AAPG and the OSU College of Engineering were on hand to help run the stations, guide students, and offer insight.

In all, more than 90 prizes were awarded, among them three Dell laptop computers, two Apple watches, Kindle Fires, a Polaroid camera and gift cards. Additionally, four students received “Day In the Life” prizes, enabling them to travel aboard the ConocoPhillips air shuttle from Bartlesville to the company’s global headquarters in Houston to learn more about career opportunities within the energy industry. Prize drawings were offered for parents and teachers as well.

Will Central win the Math & Science Night cup on 11/6?

posted Oct 31, 2017, 2:38 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 31, 2017, 2:43 PM ]


Cup competition
The competition is on! Central and Madison students will be vying for the cup awarded to the school with more students attending the Second Annual “Hands On, Minds On Bartlesville Math and Science Night” event on 
Monday, November 6, 2017 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at Madison Middle School at 5900 Baylor Drive.

The free event is open to all area middle school students. No sign-ups are necessary. Last year, over 200 students, along with parents and siblings, attended the event. 

Sponsored and facilitated by ConocoPhillips and the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board (OERB), the Oklahoma State University chapter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the College of Engineering, Architecture & Technology, the event aims to help area youngsters from grades six through eight learn more about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields as well as career options in the energy industry. 

This event supports ConocoPhillips’ global commitment to help students excel in math, graduate high school and succeed in college. 

While the inaugural event proved to be very popular, this year’s “Hands On, Minds On” event promises to be bigger and better. The special “Math and Science Night” offers interactive fun as students explore several activity stations focused on various subjects, such as coding, seismic activity, acid tests, stream tables and rock samples. But this year’s event will offer even more activity stations than its predecessor and more space will be available in which interested youngsters can gather and explore. 

As was the case last year, math- and engineering-themed games will be available, with prizes awarded at the end of the night. Complimentary pizza and beverages will be provided as well. Volunteers from ConocoPhillips, OSU’s AAPG chapter and the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board will be on hand to help run the stations, guide students and offer insight.

Middle School Math & Science Night on 11/6/2017

posted Oct 9, 2017, 7:33 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Oct 9, 2017, 7:33 AM ]

All Central parents and students are invited to a major STEM event on Monday, 11/6/2017:
The second annual Hands-On, Minds-On Bartlesville Math & Science Night event for middle school students will be held on Monday, November 6, 2017 from 6-8:30 p.m. at Madison Middle School. The event is open to all middle school-age students in the Bartlesville area.

Last year over 200 middle school students, along with parents and siblings attended the first annual event, which featured over two dozen interactive stations, manned by volunteers from ConocoPhillips, the OSU student chapter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, and the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board. 

At the annual event students learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields as well as career options in the energy industry. Last year's stations included coding, seismic activity, acid tests, stream tables, and rock samples along with math and engineering-themed games.

Theresa Miller, science building coordinator at Madison, said, "It was amazing last year and expectations should prove to be even better for this year." 

The event will again feature free pizza and many student prizes, including Apple watches, laptop computers, drones, and more. There will be a new  opportunity for four lucky students to fly on the commuter plane to Houston for a facility tour.

This year's event will feature more stations, a photo booth, more space, and a drawing for a gas card for parents attending with students, plus a gift card drawing for teachers who volunteer or come with their students.

So save the date and make plans to attend!

Health department flu vaccine clinics begin 10/2/2017

posted Sep 21, 2017, 10:39 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Sep 21, 2017, 10:46 AM ]


The Washington County Health Department's seasonal influenza vaccination clinics will begin Oct. 2, 2017. The department recommends flu vaccination each year for everyone 6 months of age and older.

Vaccinations will be scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays — by appointment only — at the health department offices at 5121 S.E. Jacquelyn Lane in Bartlesville. Their phone number is 918-335-3005.

Flu season usually starts in September or October and runs through April or May. 

“It takes about two weeks after vaccination to become fully protected so it is important for everyone in your family to be vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Larry Bergner, administrative director for the Washington County Health Department. “Protection from the flu vaccine lasts about six months, so people vaccinated in October should be protected through April of next year.”

The county health department will provide flu vaccine using the following fee schedule:
  • All individuals with health insurance should bring their card. Their insurance company will be billed for the vaccine and an administration fee.
  • Individuals who have no health insurance, whose health insurance does not cover flu vaccine, who are eligible for SoonerCare, or children 18 years of age and younger who are Native American or Alaskan natives may receive their vaccine at no charge.
  • All others will be charged a fee of $25 to cover the cost of the flu vaccine and the cost of administering the vaccine.
SoonerCare, Medicare, all private health insurance, cash, checks, or credit cards as payment for flu vaccine will be accepted.

For more information, call 918-335-3005.

10/4/2017 is Walk to School Day

posted Sep 21, 2017, 6:46 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Sep 22, 2017, 3:29 PM ]


Walking to school
Bartlesville Public School District students at most BPSD sites are encouraged to walk or bike to school on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. The annual Walk to School Day involves all six elementary schools and both Central and Madison middle schools. 

The international event is observed in more than 40 countries. It is an effort to raise awareness of the need for safe walking and biking facilities and to encourage students to take steps toward leading a healthier lifestyle.
 
Each student who walks or bikes to school that day will receive a prize/treat to acknowledge their participation in the program, as long as supplies last.

During a meeting Monday, the Bartlesville City Council issued a proclamation observing Walk to School Day.
 
"More than 2,500 local students participate in Walk to School Day every year," said City Grants Administrator Nancy Warring. "This event gives parents a chance to teach safe walking skills to their children. Plus it's good for the environment, and it reduces traffic congestion, pollution and speed near the schools."

"Parents are encouraged to walk with their children, park and walk from a remote location, or organize a walking school bus," Warring said. "For families who live too far away to walk or bike to school, parents are encouraged to drop their students off a few blocks from their school so they can participate."
 
Walk to School Day was first held communitywide in Bartlesville in 2009, thanks to a grant awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to the City of Bartlesville to help facilitate the event.

Volunteers and other program supporters will be posted at each participating BPSD site to greet students who walk or bike to school, including some area elected officials and local police officers and firefighters.
 
For more information about Walk to School Day, see www.cityofbartlesville.org. To volunteer for the local event, contact Kerry Ickleberry, BPS Safe Schools coordinator:
