Pre-College programs of The Ohio Academy of Science
Invention Convention (Grades K-8) - encourages EVERY child in Ohio to follow their natural curiosity, invent creative solutions to problems, and be inspired to achieve their highest level of personal accomplishment. Younger students are able to identify and solve problems using the engineering/design process.
Annual Meeting (Grades 5-12) - The OAS Annual Meeting give students the opportunity to present at a professional scientific meeting and to interact with college students and scientific professionals. Please note, students are expected to present a scientific poster, not a poster-board, at the Annual Meeting.
State Science Day (Grades 5-12) - Through participation in local and district science days, students can qualify for State Science Day and an opportunity to compete for over 4 million dollars in scholarships and awards.
Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair (Grades 9-12) - The BSEF will begin qualifying students in 2015 for the Intel ISEF (https://student.societyforscience.org/intel-isef). Currently, almost half of the counties in Ohio cannot qualify for the Intel ISEF which is one of the most prestigious science events in the world.
Believe in Ohio (Grades 9-12) - For students who are interested in STEM and entrepreneurship, the Believe in Ohio program introduces students to commercialization and business plan development in addition to scientific research.
