Some of the Midstate’s brightest young minds competed in the 67th annual North Museum Science and Engineering Fair.
For the first time in its history, the fair took place at the Student Memorial Center at Millersville University.
More than 300 Lancaster County middle and high school students submitted projects.
Organizers say they were impressed with the complexity of the projects.
“They are using PCR analysis for DNA that wasn’t even in existence when I was in school. They’re using techniques in the BSL2 microlab under supervision of qualified scientists locally or their teachers as well,” fair director Dave Martin said.
Winners will fly out to Arizona where they will compete with other science and engineering students from around the globe.
