YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — About 125 area students gathered today to put their science skills to the test.

The Lake to River Science Day was held on the campus of Youngstown State University.

For the competition, students in fifth to 12th grade conducted science experiments.

The kids whose projects were deemed will head to state competition.

Stephen Rodabaugh {road-ah-bah}, assistant dean of the S.T.E.M. program at Y-S-U said the annual event helps with more than just science.

“Well, the state has put out a number of standards in each of the educational areas and we think that science fairs and science day addresses just about all of them,” said Stephen Rodabaugh, YSU S.T.E.M. college.

The top 64 students who took part today will compete at the state level.

That competition is May 10 in Columbus.
