Central Tech’s annual open house will host a free health fair on Sunday, February 18, from 1-4 p.m.
Along with the health fair, Central Tech will have more than 70 attractions and demonstrations that are sure to please the whole family as they focus on technical learning, today’s technology, and interactive exhibits.
Health fairs on both the Drumright and Sapulpa campuses may include taking vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, pulse, respiration), height, weight, BMI, glucose & hemoglobin checks, blood typing, children’s health-related activities, and more.
Step out in technology and try your hand at virtual welding, laparoscopic surgery, voice commands, plasma cutting, and driving a VEX robot. Central Tech teaches skills needed for today’s jobs. Come see what’s new and available to you.
And of course, Open House wouldn’t be what it is without car and motorcycle shows. See Corvettes in Sapulpa or stock and modified cars and trucks, race cars, and motorcycles in Drumright.
Children will enjoy visiting a live-bug petting zoo, digging up and labeling bones, seeing the germs on their hands,
participating in the kids’ hospital where they are the doctor, face and nail painting, climbing inside emergency vehicles, operating a robot, checking on chicken eggs that may be hatching, and taking a picture with their family.
If you’re interested in construction, electrical trades, or welding be sure you tour the shops and get involved in the action. Interested in how the world around you is designed? Come by the Design Drafting classroom to see a 3D printer in action.
In Drumright, visit the seminar center to see polyfusion demonstrations, a storage tank floating roof simulator, and experience confined space in the safety trailer.
In Sapulpa, stop by the Industrial and Safety Training Center for the fire extinguisher trainer contest, participate in the overhead and mobile crane obstacle course, and learn about HVAC on one of their many trainers.
Doors open at 1 p.m. on both campuses with activities happening throughout each of the buildings. Bring your family and your appetite. Central Tech will have food vendors along with free popcorn while supplies last. There is something for the whole family to experience.
Students and faculty at Central Tech will also join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®. This year’s tagline is Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow! CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country with an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college and career ready, and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.
