More than 200 of Milwaukee Public School's sharpest students attended the sixth annual district-wide science fair last week.
Students from 30 MPS schools gathered at the Milwaukee County Zoo to display their findings and compete for top honors.
Each student was required to defend his or her project three times, and volunteer judges evaluated the students' work based on the Scientific Method.
The fair showcased projects from every grade level -- kindergarten all the way to grade 12.
