The 55th annual CCISD Science Fair exemplified the collaboration, creativity, and innovation the Clear Creek Independent School District believes is at the core of student success. Almost 600 elementary and secondary projects were evaluated by volunteer judges from the community. Top honors were awarded in grades 4 through 12 during the awards ceremony on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 in the Bayside Commons at the Education Village in League City.  In all, 220 students received recognition for their projects which ranged from Brace Yourself: A Novel Electronically Aided Leg Orthosis to A Novel Dried Blood Spot Method: Next Generation Ovarian.

 

More than 300 4th and 5th graders competed at the district level science fair in the elementary category. At the intermediate and high school level, more than 200 students competed in four divisions and 18 different categories. Projects were evaluated by teams of volunteer judges from the community. They selected Grand Award winners and place winners.   More than 80 Junior, Ninth, and Senior Division winners are eligible to advance to the Science Engineering Fair of Houston.

The Presenting Sponsor of the District Science Fair was Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), a staunch supporter of the fair for several years. The audience of more than 1,000 students and parents had the opportunity to hear from Charlie Stegemoeller, SAIC Vice President for Program Management and science fair enthusiast. “Stay happy with who you are. Have fun being a scientist, engineer, musician, mathematician, teacher, or lawyer,” said Stegemoeller. “And have fun with what you do, because in business, and especially the business I hope you get in – aerospace, science - you push the envelope by having fun, and taking the game to the next level.”

 

The success of the CCISD Science Fair was in huge part because of the dozens of elementary and high school teachers who volunteered their time. “We want to thank our teachers, staff and our community members who came together to make sure every facet of this year’s science fair was done correctly,” said CCISD Science Coordinator Anne Smith. “Without question, volunteers are a vital part of the science fair process.”
