Started in 2019, the SCIENCE RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM is a celebration of science and research within the Saint Andrew's Episcopal School community. Upper School students interested in getting an in depth introduction to the science research experience can take a full year dual enrollment, elective class, Scientific Research and Design. The class gives students a taste of research through two major experiences: a self-directed independent research project and a research collaboration with a lab from the University of Texas--Austin, a top tier research institution.  Cumulating the students’ first independent research experience, they have the chance to present their findings before their peers, faculty, staff, alumni, and administrators at the Science Research Symposium that celebrates their efforts and achievements while celebrating science K-12 wide.

Public Exhibition of Projects

Presented by Perkin Elmer

The public is invited to view the research posters on display  throughout the day. Research projects were done by Upper School students as part of the new dual enrollment Scientific Research and Design course in partnership with the University of Texas--Austin.  Students design and implement their own research project (field of subject varies) while learning the skills that go into research. These projects will go on to Austin’s Regional Science Fair, an affiliate of the Intel international Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF).   

2 Sessions at 1:10pm and 2:00pm

Research Oral Presentations

Students showcasing projects at the symposium will give oral presentations of their research in the afternoon during two scheduled sessions.  (Please reference the specific schedule regarding exact times for specific projects.) Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the students and ask questions about their projects. Seating is limited.  Open to the public.
