The 2017 Sci://Tech Elementary Science Festival took place Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the Lone Star Convention and Expo Center in Conroe, Texas. The festival is one of many events that makes up the four-week-long Sci://Tech Exposition which is organized by the Education for Tomorrow Alliance (EfTA).
During the Huntsman Elementary Science Festival, Conroe ISD elementary schools hosted interactive booths where students were able to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for discovery. Those present also had the opportunity to watch students and student teams participate in a Math Bowl, Forensics Demonstration, Robotics Demonstration, and PBK Sci.Math.e.Lon in which they shared their knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math.
The festival was preceded by the Anadarko Senior High Science Bowl, the Technical Writing Competition, the CB&I Junior High Science Fair, and the Chevron Phillips Senior High Science Fair.
“The goal of EfTA is to connect business and education in Montgomery County. The is put into practice during the many events of the Science Exposition,” stated CISD Coordinator of Science Sheryl Hime. “Over one hundred members of the business community served as judges, supporting the efforts of students participating in the science fair. Community members also work with our CISD educators in the creation and logistics of events such as the High School and Junior High School Engineering Design Competitions. We are fortunate to have such strong support from the community and EfTA.”
The last event of the 2017 Sci://Tech Exposition will take place this weekend when the Consolidated Communications Junior High Engineering Design Competition is held at Moorhead Junior High School from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
