The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts presents the Open Book Celebration featuring keynote speaker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center.
The event will celebrate ASMSA, Arkansas's only statewide residential STEM high school, and the educational opportunities in math, science and the arts it offers some of the state's brightest young minds. There is no tuition, room or board fees for students to attend ASMSA.
This year, ASMSA has students from 58 Arkansas counties. At least one student from each Arkansas county has attended ASMSA since it opened in 1993. Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's all-time leading scorer, is now an advocate for science, technology, engineering and math education. Come hear his message about the importance of STEM education.
The event is Thursday, April 25 at 6 pm. For more information, visit www.asmsa.org or call (501) 622-5110.
