District 12 District Science Day


District Science Day is Going Virtual!

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 to 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.

2019 ISEF Rules and Guidelines

The District 12 Science Day (DSD) aims to highlight the accomplishments of Southeast Ohio’s young scientists. DSD is normally hosted at Ohio University in Athens, and is open to 5-12 grade students from Athens, Hocking, Jackson, Meigs, Morgan, Ross, and Vinton counties. Student projects that receive a superior rating at DSD have the opportunity to advance to State Science Day. The State Science will also be held virtually this year.
