About the Lake to River Science and Engineering Fair
District Science Day is Going Virtual!
Every effort is being made to ensure you have the opportunity to present at District Science Day.
The STEM Wizard registration system will support the virtual judging of projects for both District Science Days and State Science Day. This same platform will also include judging for Sponsored Awards.
A new STEM Wizard Milestone is being developed and will require the following elements
• A final report that includes the Research Plan plus the collected data, discussion of the results and conclusions, and the abstract
• Students will answer specific questions taken from the judging rubric
• Students will upload good quality photos of their poster display, capturing all of the details in focus
• Students will create a short video of their presentation (5 to 8 minutes)
You will be notified via email when the new Milestone has been added to the District Science Day registration site. This notification will include more details and further instructions.
While these details are not currently available, you will be provided with sufficient time to address the new milestone and complete the registration.
For judges, we need your help now more than ever
This new virtual platform will allow judging to happen over a 5-7-day period. Virtual judging offers much greater time flexibility than a traditional in-person, on-campus event. If you haven’t already done so, please register now.
Lake-to-River Science Day is one of 16 regional science fairs in Ohio that are sanctioned by the Ohio Academy of Science. The region represented by the Lake-to-River district comprises Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana Counties.
Science Day is an annual event sponsored by Youngstown State University, regional businesses, and civic organizations. Each year Science Day attracts hundreds of science research project entries from public, private, and parochial students in grades 5 through 12.
