FLC Student Places 1st at Coastal Bend Regional Science Fair at TAMU-CC

Eight students from Fulton Learning Center competed at the 31st annual Coastal Bend Regional Science Fair on February 15th and 16th, 2019 at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi.  The event was sponsored this year by Valero Energy, Del Mar College, and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

11 counties from the Coastal Bend area were eligible to compete.    25 school districts and charter schools registered projects.    Approximately 600 students competed at this event.

Students could enter a project in 1 of 2 categories:   Life & Health Science or Physical & Engineering Science.


FLC is proud to announce that the school again had a student take 1st place in the 5th grade division for the second year in a row!!!!      5th grader Hannah Lawing entered a project entitled “Save Our Beaches”.   Her project investigated which type of Coastal Bend area sand is most resistant to beach erosion.   Her project won 1st place in the 5th grade.  Her parents are Thomas and Jennifer Lawing.


Hannah was recognized at a campus assembly where Fulton Mayor Jimmy Kendrick congratulated her on her first place award.    Mayor Kendrick also awarded a $50 gift card to Hannah for her wonderful accomplishment.  


Other students competing at the CBRSF but not placing included 3rd graders Aspen Hrncir and Aubree Morales;  4th graders Kathryn Jones, Joseph Mace-Troche, and Tanner Starling;  5th graders Adyson Burton and Burke Johnson.    We are so proud of all of the students and their families for working so hard to advance to such a high level of competition!     Traveling to a university and being interviewed by college professors can be a daunting task.    Great job FLC students for taking the initiative to do a project, being a leader by competing, and showing grace and composure at such a huge event.    All of these students will be treated to a reward field trip to Natural Bridge Caverns in May.

Students in 6th – 12th grade are able to advance to the prestigious Texas state science fair and also the INTEL national competition – the elementary division unfortunately does not advance to the state or national level.

The science fair program at FLC is sponsored by science lab instructor Martha McLeod.
