STEM Speaker Series and Events

2020-2021 STEM Speaker Series

Due to the pandemic, Oakton will not be hosting in-person the American Mathematics Contest (AMC) for 8th graders and younger. Because AMC indicated that AMC 8 may be administered virtually, you may register your student to participate in the AMC 8 virtually via Oakton here. However, please note that because AMC has not yet opened AMC 8 registration for competition managers, we don't know yet the rules, regulations, or capacity of administering AMC 8 virtually. We will update this page if we will be able to host AMC 10/12 virtually in spring 2021.
