Middle School Students Compete in Science and Engineering Fair

Apr 02, 2019

Six student projects placed in the top three at the Texas Science and Engineering Fair (TXSEF) held in College Station on March 30. During the two-day event, more than 1,200 students showcased their projects in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

TXSEF is a middle and high school science and engineering competition that highlights the top life and physical science projects throughout 22 categories.

The science fair is about more than about creating a science project. It is a complete educational experience as the students learn more about the scientific process, gain knowledge outside of the classroom, work with a mentor and hone their presentation skills while competing with integrity.

The Frisco ISD students started their journeys on their campus. The top projects advanced to the regional fair before gaining eligibility to advance to the state competition hosted by Texas A&M University College of Engineering.

Congratulations to all students who attended the event, especially those who placed below.
