Science FairFour Clear Creek ISD students traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to compete in the 2019 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Kumaran Selva, Richard Zhang and Steven Wu from Clear Lake High School and Marcus Schlauch from Clear Brook High School competed against 1,800 other young scientists from around the world. Schlauch placed fourth in the engineering mechanics category.

“The students from Clear Creek ISD have achieved phenomenal scientific accomplishments this year and continue to prove that their persistence and innovative ideas can make a positive impact in their respective STEM fields,” stated Dr. Heather Domjan, executive director of the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston, interim executive director of the University of Houston STEM Center, and clinical associate professor in the University of Houston College of Education.

Schlauch’s project, titled “Portable Graphene Oxide Desalination,” earned him a $500 award for his hard work and recognition by the Society for Science & the Public and the Intel Foundation during the world’s largest international pre-college science competition.

“All of Clear Brook High School is thrilled for Marcus on his fourth place win at the ISEF,” said Clear Brook Principal Michele Staley. “His love for science and engineering coupled with his commitment and desire to better serve our community led to an amazing research project and this international recognition. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
