High school students from North and South Carolina are getting together to show off their science smarts.
About 120 students are participating in the Xtreme Technology Event on Friday at Benedict College in Columbia.
The seventh annual event is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Students compete in teams of six in categories including biology, chemistry, engineering and mathematics.
Students also get to tour Benedict's School of Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and get information about campus groups, including women in engineering and the National Organization of Black Chemists.
