CMS sixth-grader wins third place in science and engineering fair

Creekwood Middle SchooStress Relievers l sixth-grader, Alexis Pubentz, won third place for her project, “Stress Relievers,” in her grade level at the Humble Independent School District’s Secondary School Science-Engineering Fair. She competed against St. Mary Magdalene’s Catholic School. The Science Fair is open to any student living in Humble ISD including those in public, private or charter schools.


Pubentz said her findings were that having a stuffed animal made adults less stressed and that children had a lower pulse rate when they held nothing. Pubentz tested pulse rate, silly putty, a ball and a stuffed animal to determine if holding different objects impacted a person’s stress level. She chose “Stress Relievers,” because she was interested about the silly putty from a question in her class.


The District offers science fairs so that students who are interested in science have a venture to pursue those interests.
