Students from every corner of Gwinnett County took part in the regional science fair Feb. 22.

More than 1,000 students, including those from Peachtree Corners schools, participated in the 35th annual Gwinnett County Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Friday, Feb. 22.

It is the county's largest regional event, and students come from public schools, private schools, homeschools and more.

The theme this year is "Motivating the Next Generation of Science and Engineering Leaders—from Classroom to Career."

Debi: Not sure what GSMST stands for, but if you've got photos or a video of one or more students at the fair, please upload it to this story and share your news with everyone.
