Welcome to the Western Reserve District 5 Website

Thanks to everyone that helped make the spring 2015 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 spring The University of Akron's Department of Polymer Science will host the 68th Annual Western Reserve District 5 Science Day on Saturday, March 19.

Students in grades 5-12 prepare 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.

Last spring we had 314 projects, and competition was tough. We hope everyone enjoyed their experience and grew from it.
