We have begun our 2019 science fair season. Many Humble ISD elementary schools have fairs and participate in our judging exchange. Judges do not have to be scientists or engineers (this is only fifth-grade science). You just need an interest in helping our students experience science and scientific inquiry. Training is provided at each fair.

We need judges. In the past we needed 25 judges per fair and often fell short. We have a new option for the students this year: In addition to scientific exploration through traditional science projects, they may do scientific investigations. This means we will do two fairs at the same time and need more judges. If you are interested in finding out more and participating, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Also, be sure to come check out the celestial wonders at the observatory on the first Friday each month, sunset to 10 p.m.:humbleisd.net/observatory.
