OSU program catches bright kids early

It was show-and-tell time on Friday for students participating in Oregon State University’s Outside the Box precollege program. Eighth-grader Jordan Holdaway, 13, also had her family at Friday’s showcase. Her TekPet panda, Oreo, was on display at the electronic pet table. “It was an arts and crafts project. I used a computer to program it,” Holdaway said. “I liked making the TekPet; that was my favorite class. I liked meeting people and learned a lot of new things.” Corvallis Gazette-Times
