A new generation of young scientists put their experiments on display this weekend at the Edmonton Regional Science Fair.
Almost 300 students from grades 4 to 12 took part in the competition at NAIT, showcasing innovative projects that prove youth are capable of more than the classic baking soda and vinegar volcano.
Alana Pay, a junior high student from Drayton Valley knew there was a link between alcohol and criminal behaviour in humans, but wanted to know how alcohol would affect worms. In the end, as tequila lovers might guess, the worms exposed to alcohol did not survive.
Eight projects presented from junior and senior high school students here in Edmonton were selected to compete for top honours at nationals in Ottawa in May.
