UNINTECH Judges at NISD Science Fair

San Antonio, TX – July 2014

Unintech has always felt it is important to support educational programs, so when Northside Independent School District Ralph Langley Elementary called us to help judge their annual Science Fair, we jumped at the opportunity.

Our Civil Project Manager Ty Turner, P.E. was the guest engineering judge on November 20 and was joined by UTSA Engineering graduate students in judging projects submitted by the 3rd through 5th grade classes.

“I saw the science fair as an opportunity to encourage future scientist, mathematicians, and engineers,” said Turner who is also the current President of the local San Antonio American Society of Civil Engineers.

Projects were judged on how carefully students followed the scientific method and if students were able to come to a provable conclusion. Some of the most common themes were food, electricity and of course, the Disney movie Frozen. The following projects received awards:

  • First place: Can you separate DNA from fruit?
  • Second place: What potato chips have the most grease?
  • Third place: What drinks stain teeth the most?

As engineers, we feel it is important that we encourage students who have an aptitude in science and math to explore degrees in engineering in order to be the innovators for their generation.

“What I liked the most was the desire by the students to make an effort to participate in this voluntary activity and learn something about their world,” said Turner, “it was great to see how the students learned about a subject through experimentation on their own time.”

We want to thank Principal Leticia Ramirez, the staff, and teachers of Ralph Langley Elementary for their hospitality and the opportunity to part of this event.
