Some Green Country high school students put their creative and critical thinking skills to the test in the first-ever "Engineer Games."
Tulsa Community College hosted today's competition with the mission of, "design it, build it, and operate it."
The contests are meant to showcase the talent of future engineers and encourage more students to choose a career in engineering.
"They get to see what they're great at and feel accomplished and excited, and get to see what they'll actually be doing in the world later on, after they've put in all the hard work with the math and with the physics," said Maemi Dildy, from Edison High School.
Students from Bartlesville, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Jenks, and several Tulsa high schools took part.
