Students prep for March STEM competition


BRUNSWICK COUNTY (WWAY NEWS)- Brunswick County High students are getting ready to take home the gold in science competitions. Students put their talents to the test at an invitational Saturday.

Each of the groups represent schools across the county in chemistry, biology, physics and other STEM-related studies. This is a chance for the students to compete on a smaller level before the regional competition in march at UNCW.

Based on their performance at the invitational, students get a chance to improve their project or study harder.

“Events like this help what is in the classroom and bring it beyond,”┬ásaid Jamie Smith, Brunswick County instructional science coach. “It gives them a hands-on experience in where they would use the information learned in the classroom. This is just one of those events where we can just make science come alive.”

Smith says students have benefited from this invitational, as students received national awards last year.
