Thousands of students took over the Palmer Events Center Friday to compete for the top spot of the Austin Energy Regional Science Festival.
Elementary, middle and high school students presented more than 2,000 science projects at the show. Topics ranged from health to computer technology, and covered everything in between.
Depending on the grade level, winners from the festival could advance to a state-wide or even an international competition.
Students said the process itself is often more important that the final project.
"Trial-and-error is one thing,” Brian Jordan, sophomore at Bowie High School, said. “The amount of time it takes to put together something like this to finalize a project like this. The amount of dedication it took. It's just all a learning process."
