🥳 Huge round of applause for LTISDSchools Lake Travis High's Aniket Navarent for taking 1st place in the Biomedical and Health Sciences category! Aniket (in the red polo) is headed to ISEF!

Several of the Lake Travis High students got together and watched the award ceremony with teacher Kallie Nichols. Ms. Nichols even gave out candy bars as awards -- might that beat getting a trophy? 🥰

Lake Travis High had:
🏆9 placements
🏆8 special awards
🏆4 State Qualifiers
🏆And one ISEF Best of Fair!

What was the title of Aniket's project? Refinement of SNP mutations of Atopic Dermatitis related Filaggrin through existing R packages.

The Travis County Medical Association will once again support Science Fest as a Bronze Sponsor. Their 65-year commitment spans generations of science students across Central Texas.

The Alliance assists the Travis County community with health related needs and fosters social networks for the families of medicine.

Fun fact! When the First Annual Austin Science Fair (as it was known then) was organized by the University of Texas in 1956, the Travis County Women’s Medical Auxiliary, now TCMA, raised the necessary funds to send two students to the Science Club of America, the precursor of today’s International Science And Engineering Fair.

👏Thank you for your many, many years of generous support.

Hello, are teachers allowed to be present prior to public viewing that takes place at 4:30pm? I’d love to get pictures of my students by their boards. Thanks!
