Seventy-five Waverly Middle School Students pitched their projects -- their science projects that is.

"We are interested in bridge building and how bridges work," said Devin Benson, a Waverly 8th Grade student.

Seventy-two judges graded the projects.

"So we compared things made for specific reasons to restore electrolytes," said Britni Kucera, a Waverly 8th Grade student.

"I tested 3 types of wood, plywood, basswood, and balsam wood to see which burned faster," said Ashley Turner when she presented her fire project.

"They spend ten weeks choosing a topic, and researching it. The top 10 get to move on to the Junior Science Academy held at Nebraska Wesleyan University later this year," said Gary Brown, a Waverly Middle School Science teacher.

"The next is river rock which has an average of 429.17 N T U after 6 trials," explained Allie Maguire during her presentation of rocks.

Maguire made it to the regional tournament with a win Thursday.

She will have a shot at competing at the high school level and a national championship.
