North Texas students will be showcasing their scientific works Sunday and Monday at University of Texas at Arlington’s College Park Center as part of the Fort Worth Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
In its 66th year, the fair is the longest-running science and engineering fair in the state. Students in grades sixth through 12th from 10 North Texas counties will display and present their scientific research for chances at cash prizes.
This year’s entries vary from delving into the affect of video games on memory to a robot fashioned from straws, according to the university.
The top high school projects will advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair May 14-19 in Los Angeles. Other students have the opportunity to move on to the Texas Science and Engineering Fair March 31-April 1 in San Antonio.
The public can check out students’ projects from 3-7 p.m. Monday. Results will then be announced beginning at 7 p.m.
