Brentwood News

Brentwood School had a BLAST at the Regional Science Fair at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville on Friday.  It was a learning experience for everyone and Brentwood is more than ready to return next year to compete!  Students spent time talking with several judges , who were graduate students from the Science department from GC&SU about their projects. Judges read through their research books, observations, and notes, and made notes of their own.  At the end of the day, many were recognized and all first place winners will advance to  State Competition in Athens in March.
