ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Dozens of middle and high school students displayed their projects at the 39th Annual Regional science fair at Darton College.

Albany High's Chelsea Fitzhugh did a project on Acid Rain. She says while most students may not take science projects seriously, she does.

She knows the job market for her generation will be looking to students with strong math and science skills. The more she learns now, the better off she'll be when she goes off to college.

"I want the research experience in the field that I want to go into, chemistry," said Fitzhugh. "I want to do research as an undergraduate student so I feel that If I have research in my background, it will help me when I start to do undergrad research."

Students will find out if they took home ribbons for their work tonight.

For the first time, home school students also got to compete in the regional competition.
