Albany -- Are boys smarter than girls? How many germs are in that water bottle you're reusing?

These are just some of the questions youngest scientists are trying to answer at this year's regional science fair. 85 middle and high school students are competing in the 34th Annual Science Fair sponsored by Darton College and Merck.

The students performed experiments in sciences, from engineering to chemistry. A panel of judges review and rank the projects.

Moultrie eighth grader Kristy Wright set out to prove girls have better memories than boys. "The teachers keep asking he boys why they didn't have they homework. And the boys say 'I forgot,' but all the girls have their's. I wanted to prove the boys could remember their homework, so I had this experiment," said Kristy.

Judges will soon announce the winners of the science fair. We'll bring you those results tonight at 11.
