For more than 60 years — and now with more than 60,000 alumni — State Science Day is the pinnacle of student originated, inquiry-based science education for Ohio’s students. The academic equivalent of a state athletic championship, this year’s event is one of the largest of its kind in the nation. Drawing upon a base of over 35,000 students at more than 1,000 local school science fairs, more than 1,100 students in grades 5–12 from nearly 300 schools will be evaluated this year on their scientific research and communication skills. They will compete for nearly 100 different scholarships and awards valued at more than $600,000. Individuals will be recognized and several sponsors will also make awards to members of team research projects. First held in 1949, the 70th Annual State Science Day is sponsored by: The Ohio Academy of Science, American Electric Power, Battelle, Ethicon, The Ohio Environmental Education Fund, The Ohio Tuition Trust Authority and The Ohio State University. ohiosci.org/ssd-2018
