SAISD Hosts Science Showdown

May 14, 2010

San Angelo ISD 5th graders competed in the 2nd annual Science Showdown on May 6 at the West Texas Training Center. Earlier this year, students received study questions, which were formulated from the TAKS test questions and science curriculum. Each school had a campus challenge and then schools were clustered for further competition. At the Showdown, every elementary school was represented and competed against other schools. Teams competed by answering questions, and students worked their way to 8th grade level science questions before the showdown ended. This year's winner was a team from Bowie Elementary. Second place went to Fort Concho Elementary and third place went to McGill Elementary.

The district wishes to thank all the fifth grade science teachers for preparing their teams and serving as judges.
