Science Olympiad at YVCC ‘an interesting way to learn’
Eighth-grader Trent Giever and seventh-grader Frannie Ello released their balsa-wood-and-nylon helicopter inside the gym at Yakima Valley Community College on Saturday and watched it climb all the way to the ceiling, where it hovered for several seconds before descending gracefully back to the floor.
This, the helicopter-flying event at the South Central Washington Science Olympiad Regional Tournament, was the fun part, the part where Trent and Frannie got to enjoy the fruits of their labor. The hard work was over.
