Clear Creek ISD Announces 2019 Science & Engineering Fair Awards Results
Posted on 01/30/2019
Science FairOn January 22, 2019, Clear Creek ISD recognized hundreds of students for their work and scientific achievements at the 2019 Science & Engineering Fair Awards Night. The annual event is the culmination of several months of work and campus-level competitions that qualify students in grades 4 through 12 to compete at the District-level contest and potentially be recognized at the District awards night. 

Clear Creek ISD is grateful for the service of the more than 100 volunteers who evaluated the student projects. Projects are judged on a wide range of criteria, including whether the data was gathered in a reliable way, the student showed originality of thought in the design of the experiment and the average person would be able to understand what was being displayed.

With more than 3,000 elementary students participating in their campus-level science and engineering fairs, nearly 400 fourth and fifth graders advanced to the District-level competition. More than 320 intermediate and high school students competed in three divisions and 17 categories.

The judges selected Grand Award winners and place winners. Next in the competition, 124 junior and senior division winners are eligible to advance to the Science & Engineering Fair of Houston on February 22-23. Several students received special recognition through the Iyar Fine Arts Forum Sound Music Through Science – Universal Peace Through Music Award, which is presented to students with fine arts-related science projects.

The 2019 Science & Engineering Fair Presenting sponsor, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and Exhibit and Reception sponsor, University of Houston – Clear Lake, were on hand to congratulate the winners.
