Texas A&M to host event co-sponsored by Texas Workforce Commission and ExxonMobil

AUSTIN – More than 1,200 Texas middle and high school students will present their outstanding projects at the 2020 Texas Science and Engineering Fair (TXSEF). The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) continues its commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and the success of tomorrow’s workforce by co-sponsoring the event for the 19th consecutive year with ExxonMobil. TWC anticipates nearly 4,000 students, parents, school officials, and industry representatives will attend the fair hosted this year for the second time by Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, on March 27-28, 2020.

As a community supported event, the science fair relies on professionals in the science and engineering fields who generously volunteer their time to this event and who are vital to its ongoing success. As a part of the process, judges are responsible for reviewing projects as well as providing encouragement and constructive criticism to students pursuing future STEM disciplines. This event offers professionals from a variety of STEM fields a rewarding opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of these talented young people, while also highlighting their professions.

The fair is currently seeking over 450 judges for Saturday, March 28, 2020 from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Judges are responsible for evaluating and scoring student projects and providing encouragement and constructive criticism. Individuals interested in judging can apply on the Texas Science and Engineering Fair website.

Winners from the science fair’s senior division may qualify for the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) competition in Anaheim, California in May 2020 and will also earn a spot at the Texas Governor’s Science and Technology Champions Academy, a weeklong residential summer camp. Past winners from this event have gone on to win top prizes at ISEF, visit the White House and attend prestigious universities across the country. The Texas Science and Engineering Fair is officially sanctioned by the Society for Science & the Public.
