Nearly 180 Pasadena ISD students gathered recently at Philips Gym to showcase their work at the district’s elementary school science fair, where variety, creativity, and advanced application of scientific concepts were on display throughout the event.

“The judges were impressed with the level of rigor and the students’ thorough understanding of the scientific process and experimental design,” said Gladys Gonzalez, PISD elementary science and social studies instructional specialist.
Science teachers and elementary peer facilitators judged students in five categories including top scientist, best experimental design, best real world application, most creative and honorable mention.

The event, sponsored by Dixie Chemical, Houston Astronomical Society and Houston Water Works, featured 96 students receiving gold medals for earning a score of 89 and higher and 84 students receiving a silver medal for earning an 88 and lower.

Ten students earned trophies for the best experiment in each category.
