Cenla students put science projects to the test at regional fair

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Some of the best and brightest from Central Louisiana schools put their innovations to the test Saturday at LSUA.

Students went head to head at the annual LA Regional Science and Engineering Fair, presenting projects that placed at their schools.

Projects ranged from finding out how strong an electromagnet is to how solar power can start a remote control car.

"I chose this because, I am very interested in origami and the way that things fly," said East Natchitoches Elementary student Lathan Johnson about his paper plane project.

The sixth through twelfth grade students competed for a chance to make it to states in Baton Rouge this March.
