District Science Fair features innovative student projects

From Clear Creek Independent School District

March 22, 2007

LEAGUE CITY – The Clear Creek ISD science fair celebrates and recognizes the bright, young, scientific minds of our district. From biomedical research to space exploration, students in Clear Creek ISD impressed the expert volunteer judges and began laying the foundation for university-level, scientific research projects.

Across the district, more than 480 elementary projects advanced to the district science fair. At the secondary level, more than 450 projects competed for the opportunity to compete at regional, state and international competitions. Clear Creek ISD has 134 projects advancing to the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston.

“A good science project is one where the student repeats testing to show data reliability and uses scientific thought in the experiment,” said Anne Mangas-Smith, Clear Creek ISD elementary science coordinator. “The projects are best when you can see a student is passionate about the project and then the student’s enthusiasm shines through.”

The district Science Fair supports the district’s science curriculum, as well as the National Science Education Standards. Science Fair teaches students how to conduct a long-term project while developing critical thinking skills through scientific processes. Science Fair supports real world applications that involve mathematics, reading and writing. Throughout the process, students are encouraged to explore the deeper understandings of their inquiry-based project.
