Region VI Science and Engineering Fair
Have you ever tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than five minutes? Well, there’s a machine that’s built to do just that.
It was built by a local student here on the Coast. It’s just one of the many projects part of the Region VI Science and Engineering Fair at the Coast Coliseum today. More than 800 students from our six southern counties gathered in Biloxi to show off their science and engineering skills. From chemistry and physics projects to global warming and even Mississippi coastal conservation, it could all be found at the science fair.
Science Fair presenter Sophie Blythe said, “The grass really helps our environment a lot and if we didn’t have the grass then we wouldn’t have very many endangered animals because there’s endangered animals that live in there.”
Science Fair presenter Wesley Job said, “Plants can really help us in a way because later on with global warming it can cause the ice caps to melt and it will cause a major tragedy and we don’t want that to happen.”
Today’s seventh through 12th grade winners will move on to a state competition.
