Albany-- 275 Students from Dougherty County Elementary schools competed in the Eighth Annual Science Olympiad today at the Parks at Chehaw. Third, fourth, and fifth graders, made up teams of 18 students.

They were chosen based on their proficiency in science class. The students competed in aerodynamics, building clay boats, and a strawberry egg drop.  Most of the students say they just like to use their science knowledge in the field.

"Because you can get away from school and apply the science activities that you learned, and it is so much fun because you can be part of a science community" said science student Colliel Peterson.

At the closing ceremonies, students were treated to animal demonstrations, and were awarded ribbons for their achievement.
