Join Us for Science Day 2020

This event is for students wishing to qualify for entry to a District Science Day in their area.

Lake Erie College will be hosting our annual 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.

Lake Erie College and the Ohio Academy of Science

The Lake Erie College Local Science Day will adhere to The Ohio Academy of Science 2019-2020 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.
  • The display should not include food or other biological samples.  Pictures should be used instead.


Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in disqualification from the event.
