High School Open House

February 21st, 2020

A 108-Year Tradition

Since 1912, the students of the University of Oklahoma have had the pleasure of extending an invitation to area high school students to participate in the Engineering Open House, the oldest and most successful event on the University of Oklahoma campus. High school students from across the state come to Norman each year to sample what the OU Engineering programs have to offer. The contests are open for home school students to register for and participate in with a sponsor/chaperone present with them while on campus.

The engineering design competitions are the highlight of this event. These competitions are designed to allow students to display their knowledge of math, science, and logic areas. The annual Engineering Open House allows tomorrow’s engineers and scientists to get started today.
