Highlights for the Invention Convention


Amber Stafford, Circulation Manager
The 23rd Annual Invention Convention, also known as the Oklahoma Student Inventors Exposition, showcased projects in the RSC Communications building lobby on Feb. 28. The annual event highlighting K-12 students from numerous schools is directed by inventor Julian Taylor, who holds more than 100 patented inventions, and Betty Wright, a former elementary teacher and current RSC regent,
“I like to see more products made in the USA and not overseas. It gives the inventors an opportunity to solve problems step-by-step using reading, math, science and technical skills to solve real problems to help better lives,” said Wright in her 23rd year of organizing the exposition.

The winners, first through fifth place, are determined by a panel of 24 judges from Tinker Air Force Base, 6 patent attorneys, and Dr. Wayne Jones from the Engineering Science Department at RSC. Entries are divided into five categories. Overall, there is one grand-prize winner, two division winners and a wackiest invention winner.
