South Georgia homeschoolers compete in science fair

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –South Georgia Home schoolers showed off their projects Friday in their annual Science Fair.

26 home school students, most of them high schoolers, set up their science fair projects in subjects from physics, biology, to consumer products.

This year for the first time, the home schooler's entries will be submitted for the 39th annual Darton College/Merck Regional Science Fair and will be judged against public school projects from across South Georgia.

SWGHA Science Fair coordinator Sandra Smith said  "I have no doubt that the kids will do real well. Or respectably at least. This is the first time we've done it. So we're looking forward to being part of that community effort."

The home schooler's science fair was judged today by college professors, doctors, and engineers. Then the winners will move on to the Regional Science Fair at Darton College February 18th.
