LEWISTON -- More than 700 students from 28 school districts battled it out in science and technology today at Niagara County Community College.
The college's annual Tech Wars competition gives high school and middle school students a chance to go head-to-head in 24 different events -- from constructing windmills to CO2 car racing.
"If you take a look around and see the competitors here, they're all having a great time, and that's what it's all about," said Mark Voisinet, who helped found the 14-year-old competition. "To show students that there are great-paying, rewarding career paths in science, technology, engineering and mathematics."
