Science Olympians have descended on Bryan.
Blinn College played host to the Brazos Valley Regional Science Olympiad Saturday. Middle school and high school teams competed in 35 different science categories. The naked egg drop and trajectory areas were big crowd pleasers.
Some Riverwood middle schoolers say they've been practicing for on the trajectory events for weeks.
"You have to get it lined up with the middle of the target, the trajectory, and then whenever you shoot it if it moves left or right then you have to move it according to how far it goes," said competitors Meaghan Anderson and Sami Mero.
Kids could compete in all kinds of categories from genetics and robotics, to astronomy and geology.
Winners from Saturday's event advance to the state science olympiad at Texas A&M in April. The Texas winners will travel to Washington, DC in May for the national competition.
