Over 250 students from Conroe ISD competed at the 57th Annual Science & Engineering Fair of Houston held the last weekend in February at the University of Houston. The junior and senior high students qualified for this regional event at the CISD Science Fair earlier in the month.
Of those 250 students, 57 advanced to the state science fair, the Texas Science & Engineering Fair (TSEF), which will be held in San Antonio the first weekend in April. Winners at TSEF will then be eligible for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), which will be in Phoenix in May.
“It is truly a recognition of the studentsâ hard work and dedication along with the support of their parents and teachers to be selected to go to TSEF,”Â commented Sheryl Hime, Conroe ISD Science Coordinator.Â “We are also so honored to have students already eligible to represent Conroe ISD at ISEF.”
Five Conroe ISD students have qualified for ISEF as a result of their strong showing at the Science & Engineering Fair of Houston. These students fromÂ the Academy of Science and Technology are Nicholas Bracci (10th grade), Life Science; Andrew Kim (10th grade), Life Science; Hannah Meiseles (11th grade), Physical Science; and the team of Megan Alam (11th grade) and Julianna Steward (11th grade), Life Science.
