Want to learn what your teenager means when they start talking about gigabytes, Skyp, or their new iPod touches?

You’re not alone, and apparently the state’s lawmakers feel the need to be tech savvy as well.

Today is “Tech Day” at the state Capitol with students from all over Oklahoma sharing their knowledge in a day-long presentation.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the students will be camped out at the fourth floor rotunda with exhibits demonstrating the latest in technology.

“This will be an exciting event and it’s an excellent opportunity for lawmakers, reporters and the general public to get insight into the extent of technology as a learning tool,” State Superintendent Sandy Garrett said in a press release.

Schools participating were from Comanche, Crescent, Howe, McAlester, Muskogee, Norman, Ponca City, Putnam City and Sperry public schools.
