YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - At the Lake to River Science Fair students displayed the hard work they have put in to scientific projects.
The associate dean of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) College at Youngstown State University says students with the winning projects will be eligible to compete on the state level.
We talked with Christopher Ernst from Geneva Middle School who tested the combustibility of six different fabrics to see which was the safest to wear if you had to stop, drop, and roll due to your clothing catching fire.
"This year well be sending 50 to 60 students on to state science day and there they compete for over four million dollars in prizes and scholarships," said Dr. Stephen Rodabaugh, YSU Associate Dean STEM College.
Students taking part in this district science fair are from Ashtabula, Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties.
