Our students are taught to thrive in a world that is rapidly changing. Our approach to learning goes beyond grades and the classroom, building the character and confidence required to achieve impressive, unique futures and achieve outstanding academic performance.
BISH future engineers Year 11 Juan and Year 12 students Eugenie and Adel made an impact at the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston last week exhibiting their work highlighting Creating an Automated Farm, Interum Cantabo: Sing Again and Levitating Microactuators.
After successfully exhibiting at the event, Year 11 BISH student Juan was invited to attend the SEFH Award ceremony and was awarded by the Houston Museum of Natural science and the Sam Houston area council Boy Scouts of America for his exhibit - Creating an automated farm. This is an incredible achievement and we are proud of Juan's outstanding accomplishment.
In addition he has been invited to participate in the annual Scout fair at NRG Arena in April.
The Science Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) provides a unique and beneficial science educational service to Junior and Senior high school students in grades 7-12.
SEFH serves as the regional fair for all junior and senior high school students in Harris County and 22 surrounding counties. Major regional fair winners are eligible to compete in the annual International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
Through the development and presentation of science/engineering projects, students enhance the following abilities:
- Making observations
- Asking questions regarding particular phenomena or situations
- Formulating ideas and procedures for the solution of a problem
- Using complex and/or analytical reasoning skills to find an answer or a solution to a problem
- Effectively presenting their works to society
SEFH strongly believes in the importance of students learning how to apply their math and science knowledge beyond the classroom. The educational activities sponsored by SEFH complement the rapidly growing demand for students with technical skills.
The jobs of tomorrow might not have yet been imagined. As the changes in science and technology continue to gather pace, we want to nurture the skills students need to succeed in the 21st century.
