WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Northern Arizona University's Science and Engineering Day took place on April 23, giving local high school students the chance to learn about the two fields through hands-on activities.

About 200 high school students from northern Arizona attended the event, including 18 Williams High School (WHS) students.

The students broke up into teams of four and rotated through different stations, where they participated in several informal science and engineering competitions.

Some of the competitions entailed building a boat out of aluminum foil to see how many pennies it could hold before sinking, building an enclosure for an egg that would allow the students to drop the enclosure from different heights without breaking the egg, and building a bridge out of straws and tape to see how much weight it could hold.

Students earned points based on the success of each of their projects. By the end of the day, one of the four-member Williams teams had earned enough points to finish first out of the 200 participating students. The team included Colton Grantham, Aiden Grantham, David Overbo and Molly Richmann.

WHS science teacher Jessica Heisley said this was the first year Williams participated in the event, and it was a good experience for the students.

"Everybody that went from here had a really good time and they had fun competing and did really well," she said.
