Mrs. Kris Clements took five students to the International Science and Engineering Fair which was help in Los Angeles, CA this year. Seventy-eight countries and 1778 finalists participated in the competition. All of these students received bids to the national competition based on their results in regional and state science fairs. Students attending were Jemma Clary, Behram Dossabhoy, Sunjay Letchuman, Alicia Smith, and Xiang Tang.
Mrs. Clements was not just a chaperone as she also presented in a symposium. The students went through a grueling schedule of judging for their projects.
Students met Nobel Laureate H. Robert Horvitz (physiology) and Taylor Wilson who made a nuclear radiation detector at the very young age of 23.
This was an outstanding experience for these students and was a great reward for a lot of hard work and research. Jemma Clary received a US Air Force award and $750. Sunjay Letchuman placed 3rd in the biochemistry category and received $1000. These students and teacher, and Caddo Magnet, did very well on an international stage!
