Bright scientific young minds gathered at College of the Rockies on March 10 to showcase their scientific experiments and inventions at the East Kootenay Regional Science Fair.

Local elementary and high school students presented their projects to members of the Regional Science Fair Judging Committee in the gymnasium.

Jess Penno, board member, said grade six to 12 students who recieve top marks at the fair will have the chance to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Edmonton in May.

Additionally, the committee will select and nominate up to three projects from grade 11 or 12 students for a post-secondary scholarship.
