SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - High school students are taking over the Le Moyne College campus for the New York State Science Olympiad Competition.
Teams from all over the state worked on experiments, putting their engineering and science skills to the test. They also learned about life beyond the classroom.
"This shows what true engineering, from the original drafting all the way through actual function, is all about," said Nigel Pratt, the event supervisor. "It's not just in theory, it's actually, 'This is what we do, here's your parameters.' You have to follow a certain set of rules to get this thing to do what it has to do, better than the 54 other teams that are here as well."
The top two schools head to a national competition in May at Colorado State University.
