Ohio Ag Connection - 05/18/2017

Twenty high school students were awarded college scholarships and another 45 shared in grants for their schools at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company's 19th Annual STEM Career Day. The scholarships and grants totaled $32,000.

Nearly 1,800 students attended the day-long weekend events, seeking to extend their understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Goodyear challenged students in grades 6 through 12 -- to create the most deliberately over-engineered contraption (in the spirit of Rube Goldberg). High school machines were required to check the air pressure of a tire while middle school machines monitored tread depth. Ten teams, totaling 83 students from across northeast Ohio, accepted the call, with the winning teams sharing $11,000 in grants

The high school event offered students a glimpse into the college experience with a tour of The University of Akron's campus and STEM facilities, as well as mentoring sessions with professionals from a variety of industries and disciplines on next steps for pursuing a career in STEM. Students at both the middle and high school events interacted with representatives from more than 40 Northeast Ohio organizations, who hosted hands-on STEM-based activities throughout the day.
