IMG_3885On Tuesday, April 1, several students from our school traveled to the College of Charleston to compete in the Lowcountry Regional Science and Engineering Fair.  We set up at the TD Center in the early afternoon with about 40 other competitors.  Students spent the day standing around, waiting and finally, answering the judges’ questions.
