The Science

Passions with Physics

Skaters see the world differently. Skaters are tireless learners with persistence and STEM knowledge. The Push Forward Skate Contest brought the community together to celebrate skaters and science learning. This project was part of a community engagement grant in the College of Arts and Sciences at Oklahoma State University.
