Loudoun County students are doing scientific research that goes well beyond the findings in a typical high school lab, and it was all on display this week at the county’s 35 annual Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
More than 200 students lined up in the Freedom High School gym to present 163 projects, spanning fields from physics and astronomy to mathematics and biochemistry. And the projects were critiqued and judged by some of the nation’s top scientists, engineers and doctors.
