Bacteria, biology and bytes, oh my!

Science projects from Southwest Georgia students were on display at Darton on Friday / Sarah Bleau

Middle school and high school students from across Southwest Georgia competed for a spot in the state science fair.

Nearly 200 students displayed their science projects at Darton College's 40th Annual Regional Science Fair. Divisions for their experiments included computer science, animal sciences and biology.

The top exhibits received awards and invitations to compete at the 64th Georgia Science and Engineering Fair in Athens. Those who do well there go on to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pennsylvania.
