Central Tech’s annual open house will host a free health fair on Sunday, February 19 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 action.

Health fairs on both the Drumright and Sapulpa campuses may include taking vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, pulse, respiration), height, weight, BMI, EKG, glucose & cholesterol checks, blood typing, vision screening, children’s health-related activities, and more.

Go beyond reality with Microsoft HoloLens or try your hand at other virtual reality simulators like: fire arms training, virtual welding, fire extinguisher usage, laparoscopic surgery, and flight simulation. 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 and custom cars, diesels, and motorcycles in Drumright.

Children will enjoy a live bug petting zoo, laser tag, seeing the germs on their hand, kids hospital, face & nail painting, child finger-printing & lifting fingerprints, climbing inside emergency vehicles, operating a robot, and taking a picture with their family.

If you’re interested in areas like construction, electrical, or welding be sure you tour the shops and sign up to tour the house that Construction is building—tour at 2:00 p.m. Interested in how the world around you is designed? Come by the Design Drafting classroom to see a 3D printer in action.

In Drumright, come by the Pipeline and Safety Training Center to see a model pipeline system, a pipeline manifold simulator, and watch a polyfusion demonstration.

In Sapulpa, stop by the Industrial and Safety Training Center for the fire extinguisher trainer contest.

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.
