Weslaco High School pupil Marc Serna stated his curiosity about agriculture sprouted after a teacher, plus a farmer, started bringing seeds into class.

Nevertheless, the 17-year-old Serna shortly noted a issue with traditional greenhouses. Without venting, overheated plants. Leave a window open too long, and uninvited rodents make themselves.

So he made a remedy: a solar-powered fan that automatically turns on once the greenhouse gets too hot.

Serna was among 700 students from across South Texas who took their own ideas into the 58th annual RGV Regional Science and Engineering Fair at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Fifty-one students each at high school and middle school classes will move on into the state contest held in March in San Antonio.

“Some of the research is beyond what’s being done at the school level,” stated Javier Garcia, the university’s regional science fair director.
