Over 1,300 junior high and high school students from across Conroe ISD participated in the District’s Science Fair on Friday, February 3 as part of the Education for Tomorrow Alliance’s (EfTA) SCI://TECH event series.

For this event, the largest science fair in Texas and one of the largest in the nation, seventh through twelfth grade students submitted research projects in one of the life science or physical science categories. Volunteer judges then ranked the students on their research and presentation skills.

“Doing research is an opportunity for the student to dig deeper into material they might not have time to explore in class,” states Dr. Susan Caffery, EfTA Board Member and Headmaster of Conroe ISD’s Academy of Science and Technology. “This experience provides opportunities to learn resilience and to keep challenging himself. The student learns to communicate ideas effectively through a written technical paper and in presenting the project to various audiences.”

At the awards ceremony held on Saturday, February 4, U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady along with Conroe ISD Superintendent Dr. Don Stockton and Judge Craig Doyal congratulated the High School Science Fair first place winners.
