Students compete in Harrison County Science Fair
Kids from all over Harrison County competed in the annual science fair at the Robert C. Byrd National Aerospace Center.
Students in grades 3-12 presented research projects for judging. Categories including biology, chemistry, engineering, and computer science. Kids thought of fun topics like "Do you need your nose to taste skittles?", a project by Branner Rock and Garth Beck.
Another student, Henry Kennedy, tested how far playing cards can be thrown and Jasa Garvin and Addison Cox wanted to find out what the five dirtiest things are in a hotel room. Jasa and Addison discovered that the telephone and bathroom floor were the two germiest items in the hotel room they tested.
An awards ceremony was held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
