Excitement filled the air during the 3rd Annual Science Extravaganza, presented by Clear Creek ISD and Space Center Houston. A record crowd of more than 3,000 intermediate school students and their families enjoyed a night of experimentation and exploration they would not soon forget.
This free event, formerly known as Science Night, was held at Space Center Houston this year, which served as most fitting backdrop for 30 exhibitors from across the region, live animals and hands-on activities contributed by each CCISD intermediate school. Channel 2 Meteorologist Khambrel Marshall even made a special appearance to talk to students about the science of weather and careers in meteorology.
Originally hosted at Clear Creek Intermediate School, Science Night was created several years ago by CCISD Teacher of the Year, Betty McCulloch, and the CCISD Science Department. With the help of 200 volunteers and sponsorships from Amerigroup, Space Center Houston, the Clear Creek Education Foundation and CCISD intermediate schools, the event continues to grow into a much-anticipated family tradition that sparks students’ curiosity in STEM disciplines and careers.
Clear Creek ISD gratefully acknowledges all community partners who invest so much time, energy and resources into making the evening memorable for our future scientists and engineers. Click here for a full list of participating exhibitors and sponsors.
