BILLINGS – MSU Billings and Billings Clinic hosted the 31st annual Science Expo to inspire children, at Alterowitz Gym on Friday and Saturday.

MSUB’s Health and Human Performance Department demonstrated VO2 max aerobic endurance training.

The Chemistry Magic Show combined chemicals to bring some entertainment to the kids.

Family, friends and the public had a chance to see the science projects from students in the first through 12th grades.

Organizers say the kids learn to think more logically when they study science.

“They’re really thinking about things, and they’re going through the process,” said Joy Stevens, a member of the science fair advisory board. “And my judges come back who are experts in their fields and say, I really learned something tonight. I never thought of it that way and even the kids, even the lower grades are teaching our judges things.”

Prizes were given, with one student winning a chance to compete this May in the International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix.
