Science On Saturday (SOS)
NPI supports our partner high schools and their WIT organizations to organize fun, educational, and interactive STEM events for the whole community. Science on Saturday (SOS) is designed to spotlight WIT’s enthusiasm for STEM and ignite an interest and experiments, hands-on activities, and demonstrations on a variety of science and engineering topics. Past events have included activities related to robots, virtual reality, building and structural challenges, health science, and aerospace engineering, among others. All K-12 students, parents, educators, and community members are invited to participate in this program.
During the 2019-2020 academic year, SOS expanded from two events a year to five events. Three schools have already hosted their event (Stephenville High School – approximately 500 attendees, Troy High School – approximately 300 attendees, El Campo High School – approximately 250 attendees). Angleton High School and Foster High School have postponed their events due to the COVID-19 crisis. NPI is determined to provide support for events like this to even more schools in the coming years.
