Hundreds of Atlanta Public School students spent their Saturday stretching their mental muscles as they competed in the 7th Annual APS Technology and Innovation Competition.

Students from around the city gathered at Sylvan Hills Middle School in Southwest Atlanta for the competition.

Children in grades 3 to 12 competed in a variety of categories including animation, digital game design, mobile apps, and robotics.

APS' Executive Director of Instructional Technology Dr. Aleigha Henderson-Rosser said the event was part of the school system's "21st Century thinking and learning."

"They have allowed us to have a fair like this where kids get to come and demonstrate and show what they've been doing," Henderson-Rosser said.

The winners will advance to the Georgia Student Technology Competition in March.
