Welcome to the Western Reserve District 5 Website

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

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.

Important Update about Forms - PLEASE READ THIS!

ISEF has NEW FORMS, including a Fillable-All-Forms master file, here: https://sspcdn.blob.core.windows.net/files/Documents/SEP/ISEF/2018/Forms/All.pdf

Please read the 2nd title line of EVERY form (look in the title 'bubble') - it explains:

  • if you need one form per STUDENT or one form per PROJECT
  • when the form is filled out (before or after experimentation)
  • it may also provide other very important information

Please remember most forms and many parts of the Research Plan should be completed BEFORE experimentation starts. Doing the forms at the proper time keeps you and others safe, and will help organize your work, protecting you from mistakes and re-work.

Use the "What forms do I really need" wizard. (Search for "ISEF Forms Wizard" on your internet browser)

The Research Plan is part of the form 1A. We expect STEMWizard will treat the research plan as a separately uploaded "form" this year.

Please check back for new UA/District 5 specific forms. We will be changing our (non-ISEF) forms too.

ISEF announced NEW CATEGORIES, here: https://student.societyforscience.org/intel-isef-categories-and-subcategories

District 5 Science Day will follow Ohio State Science Day's decision regarding whether to adopt some or all of the new categories. District 5 may combine some categories for judging and awards. More information will follow. Please check back. (For instance, for many years, Math and Computer Science were judged together at District 5.)
