More than 1,000 students, including Snellville students, participated in the 35th annual Gwinnett County Regional Science Fair on Friday, Feb. 22.
It is the county's largest regional event, and students come from public schools, private schools, homeschools and more.
The theme this year is "Motivating the Next Generation of Science and Engineering Leaders—from Classroom to Career."
-- See the attached video of Brandon Gomez, of Snellville, a ninth-grade student at Grayson High School. His project is "Nanorgs."--
In the project, these nano-organisms are extremely tiny robots that collect energy from oill spills and avoid danger while performing their job, the student says.
Judges announced the winners late Friday night. Check the event's website next week to learn who all the winners are.
