Bay County's middle school students are showing off their creative and unique science fair projects this week.
At Breakfast Point Academy, dozens of tri-fold project boards line the Media Center. Some projects are large and bright. Others are simple and packed full of information.
Teachers said it requires students the skills they've learned in many of their classes. Language arts is used for writing the research portion, math to create their charts and graphs and even a little art to decorate the display board.
Some students said it's hard work but always a fun project
"I think it is really a fun and unique activity that we get to do, said Sydney Polanin. "It's really fun and hands on."
"You get to test it, and you get to put it together, you know, and it's just really fun being able to know that you put something together that turned out this way," said Madison Coffey.
"Honestly, it would be pretty cool to win an award because I'm honestly not that great at science most of the time, but I put a really hard thought at this," said Makenzie Wroblawski.
Each middle school awards a first and second place prize in each category. All of the winners are invited to compete in the annual Three Rivers Regional Science Fair held on January 27th through the 30th.
