Columbia, SC (WLTX)- For this year's Physics Day, The South Carolina State Fair nearly doubled their numbers from last year.

Last year the fair was right around the time of the flood and a lot of schooled had to cancel. Only 35 signed up last year but this year that number went up to 65. There were a total of 2,300 students.

The University of South Carolina staffs the eight physics posts where students learn hands-on.
