Economic innovation requires first class public education

We need to build connections between K-12 public education (especially STEM programs) and our tech schools, colleges, and industries so that there are career paths from school into startup creation and high paying tech jobs.

Technology professionals in our community can work with programs such as BAPS Tiger ROARbotics and Camp Invention to get more of our kids directly involved in programming, design, and entrepreneurial competitions. One way to orchestrate this would be through technology incubators like I’ve proposed here (see this video for more).

These programs can culminate in internships and ultimately paid jobs with incubated companies for our high school, tech, and college graduates.

If you agree Oklahoma must connect our classrooms with hands-on technology programs and a path to high tech jobs, I would appreciate your vote June 26.
