The New Prague Middle School science fair showcased 26 projects from 35 sixth- through eighth-grade students. This year's competition was held Thursday, Jan. 3, in the middle school commons area.
Projects included those focusing on the weather, a comparison of bridges and weight limits, a scientific look at the effects of combining pop and Mentos and many other ideas. Students could do their own projects or work in teams of two or three.
Students were judged three times, with their scores averaged out to determine ribbon placing.
