Students at Northeast Academy of Aerospace and Advanced Technologies showed off research projects at the K.E. White Center to illustrate what they have been learning.
The first-ever exhibition took different shapes: One project involved firing a paper rocket powered by compressed air. Another depicted an ancient Sumerian city drawn to scale on a computer.
The event, similar to a science fair, offered a chance for the public to see-firsthand the quality and type of work by eighth and ninth graders at Northeast Academy, which has been in existence since late August. The school has 121 students.
