Ohio District 13 Science Day Held At Mount Union College
May 10, 2010
Top science students from grades 7-12 from Stark, Tuscarawas and Carroll counties attended the Science Day and Engineering Fair on Saturday, March 24 at Mount Union College.
The day began with judging from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a public viewing from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. To conclude the day an awards ceremony was held at 2 p.m.
Students in grades 7-12 who received a 'superior' rating at their school district's science fair were invited to attend the Science Day. Sixth grade students were able to display their projects and compete for special awards only.
Projects that followed Ohio Academy of Science Standards from students who are home-schooled or come from schools where local science fairs are not held were also welcome to be submitted to the District 13 Scientific Review Committee for possible entry to the Ohio District 13 Science Day fair.
The Ohio Academy of Science is dedicated to encouraging and assuring the discovery, understanding, dissemination and practice of science, mathematics and engineering. Each year in Ohio, there are more than 1,000 local Science Days, progressing to 16 district Science Days and culminating with the State Science Day where more than $150,000 in scholarships and awards are presented.
The Science Day and Science Engineering Fair was made possible through support from local sponsoring organizations and affiliation with the Ohio Academy of Science (Ohio District 13) and Intel Science and Engineering Fair (Ohio Region 13).
