This is the image for the news article titled MISD Students Advance To State Science FairA group of Marshall ISD students have qualified to compete in the annual Texas Science and Engineering Fair scheduled for later this month after advancing past the regional round of competition last week.

Ten students – and a total of eight projects – placed at the regional competition held at Kilgore College on March 1. This qualifies them all to advance to the 2019 Texas Science and Engineering Fair to be held March 30 in College Station.

Two Marshall students – Walt Truelove of Marshall Junior High and Carl Raymundo of Marshall High School – received specialty awards for their individual projects. Truelove’s “Gauss Rifle: The Kinetic Power of Magnets,” earned a Specialty Award of $50 from the Directed Energy Professional Society. Raymundo’s “Height is Might in Hydropower” project earned three awards: $50 from Direct Energy Professional Society; Suddenlink’s Altice Award for Communication Energy; and the Yale Science and Engineering Association’s Most Outstanding Exhibit in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics or Chemistry.

A team of students – MHS seniors Ryan Black, Carson Carlisle and Joshua Wood -- placed second in the High School Physical Science Division with “The Gauss Rifle” and received a Specialty Award of $50 from Directed Energy Professional Society.

Other Marshall Junior High students who will be advancing to the state level include:

• Bailor Burris, “How Does Heart Rate Change With Various Activities?”

• Cade Moore, “Buckets, Bricks, or Airballs: The Science Behind Shooting”

• Kaleb Patel, “Citrus Battery”

• Cade Runyan, “Do Birds Have It Wrong?”

Marshall High School freshman Samuel Delgado also qualified for state with his project, “How Does Color Affect The Brain?”

Students in grades 6-12 compete annually in the regional science and engineering fairs across Texas during January, February and March to advance to the state fair. The fair includes 20-plus categories spanning across engineering, biological sciences and physical sciences. Winning high school entries advance to compete in the Intel® International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). The Fair plays an important role in the lives and future careers of many students as they learn the critical thinking skills that necessary to thrive in any field. The science fair is more than creating a science project; it is a complete educational process through which students learn:
• To follow directions and complete the scientific process
• To gain knowledge outside a classroom setting
• To work with mentors and peers
• To hone their presentation skills
• About competing honestly and fairly
