Innovation Week

Oklahoma City Innovation District

Award Date: April 13, 2023
Awarded: $12,500

The Oklahoma City Innovation District is a convener and a catalyst, built on the idea that collaboration creates innovation. The Innovation District is Oklahoma City's vibrant hub of business, innovation, research, and technology, integrated with the presence of the State's two largest universities. Innovation Week leverages OKC's emerging STEM ecosystem to give OKCPS students insight into the ideas and careers being generated around them. Over 30 companies and organizations set up immersive hands-on simulation activities that expose students to a “Day in the Life” of their organization. Students learn how to use flight simulators, augmented and virtual reality, unmanned systems and more. Alongside the career experiences, students get to meet higher education and career tech partners to learn about the programs that lead into these careers.
