Lauderdale County, Miss. An area school participated in its first-ever science fair Tuesday morning.

Russell Christian Academy had about 80 projects total in which all of the projects were in biological and physical sciences.

"It has been a great learning experience for them," said teacher Marti Pulido. "They're learning hands on how to do the scientific method, how to put a complete project together, how to design it, how to complete it, and how to explain it to judges"
