Some budding scientific minds got together for some friendly competition today.
Students from as far off as Mandan, Crosby, and Langdon came to Bottineau for the Northeast Regional Science Olympiad.
They got to work on everything from identifying rocks to helping homemade helicopters take flight.
(Reese Mohagen, TGU-Towner) “I built it last night out of balsa wood and tissue paper.”
“So what’s the goal for it?”
(Reese Mohagen, TGU-Towner) “Stay in the air as long as you can.”
(Leah Feland, MLS-Mohall) “I think it’s really fun you get to meet other people and we like science.”
(Jerik Wells, TGU-Granville) “We haven’t done much test flights but when we did test fly it, it was in a smaller area so we don’t have a good estimate of how long it will go.”
(Tara Haygood, MLS Mohall) “It’s just really fun because we get of out school and we meet new people and learn new things.”>>
More than 400 students from about a dozen schools across northern North Dakota were part of today’s event.
