This Year's District 5 Science Day: Saturday, March 17, 2018

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 2/9/18.
(Late registration will be accepted through 2/16/18 with a $10 late fee.)

Thanks to everyone that helped make the spring 2017 WRD5 Science Day a success!

The Western Reserve District 5 Science Day is one of the 16 District Science Fairs held in Ohio each spring under the Ohio Junior Academy on Science. This year's event will be held on March 17th at The University of Akron.

Students in grades 5-12 prepared projects in one of the following areas: behavioral and social sciences, biochemistry, botany, chemistry, computers, earth and space sciences, engineering, environmental sciences, mathematics, medicine, microbiology, physics, or zoology.

We hope everyone enjoyed their experience and grew from it.

Please see the links at the bottom left for previous years' Results of Judging.

The new date for State Science Day is currently unknown.
