Lake Erie College Local Science Day

Date: February 9, 2019 

Lake Erie College will be hosting our inaugural Local Science Day for students wishing to qualify for entry to a District Science Day.  Students in The Ohio Academy of Science Districts 5 (Lake, Geauga, Cuyahoga, Summit, and Portage counties) and 15 (Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties) are encouraged to register if their school does not host a local science day (or if they want another opportunity to practice/qualify for a District Science Day).  Students earning a superior rating at Local Science Days are eligible for entry to a District Science Day.  Merit scholarships will be awarded as well as school sponsored registration for select students.

Students who are interested in registering:
  • Could be awarded a Lake Erie Scholarship ($5,000 / $3,000 / $1,000) based on merit
  • Are eligible for District Day registration fees (up to 6 will be awarded)
  • Can register repeat projects or can practice their projects at the fair

The Lake Erie College Local Science Day will adhere to The Ohio Academy of Science 2018-2019 Science Day Standards.  Specific guidelines for project display:

  • Students should prepare a table-top display with maximum dimensions of 36 in wide x 30 in deep.  The top of the display may not be higher than 55 inches above the table surface.
  • The display must be able to stand on its own in a room with traffic (bumps and drafts).  
  • The display should not include anything that could cause injury to anyone who might touch it.
