The University of Mount Union Gears Up for Ohio District 13 Science Day 2017

March 07, 2017

Alliance, OH—The University of Mount Union will host the Ohio District 13 Science Day on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. High school and middle school students from the area will present their projects in Bracy Hall on campus, and an awards ceremony will be held in the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

Science Days held all over Ohio represent one of the significant ways in which teachers actively encourage their students to explore and experience the value of the scientific method. Around 200 competitors, more than 15 projects, and 70 judges from various schools, corporations, and organizations, dozens of sponsors, and a host of staff personnel have gathered to participate in District 13 Science Day. In addition to providing participants with feedback about their projects, judges will qualify the best student projects to advance to State Science Day and the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair.

Bracy Hall contains about 87,000 gross and 56,000 net square feet, has four floors, 22 laboratories, three lecture halls, two classrooms and faculty offices. On its lower level, Bracy Hall features a 600-gallon freshwater aquarium that houses many different species of fish. The 22 laboratories in the facility are surrounded by glass to serve as a showcase for student work. 

The public is invited to view student projects throughout Bracy Hall from 11:45 a.m. – 2 p.m. this Saturday, March 11. Please contact Jamie Greiner, Sustainability and Campus Outreach Manager, at (330) 829-8168 or greineja@mountunion.edu for more information.
