NWO District 2 Science Day at UT

 What is Northwest Ohio District 2 Science Day?

Northwest Ohio District 2 Science Day (NWDSD) is the regional science fair for students in grades 5-12 in schools of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Williams, and Wood counties. Students who enter District Science Day are usually the winners from science fairs held locally at their own school, county, or school district. Projects that have followed Ohio Academy of Science standards from students who come from schools where local science fairs are not held are also welcome providing you contact the Director for special permission.

The Junior Academy Council of the Ohio Academy of Science governs NWDSD; one of 14 district science days in the state. The OAS is a nonprofit organization founded to stimulate interest in the sciences, to promote research, to improve instruction in the sciences, to disseminate scientific knowledge, and to recognize high achievements in attaining these objectives. The Junior Academy Council sets quotas of students who can compete in State Science Day and sets the rules for entries and judging criteria.

 When and Where is the 2018 Science Day?

The 72nd Annual Ohio Academy of Science Northwest Ohio District 2 Science Day will be held at the University of Toledo on Saturday, March 10, 2018.

The NWDSD Council, chaired by Mark J. Camp from the University of Toledo, organizes this important event. Members of the Council include teachers representing the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Williams and Wood. We encourage teachers to join us on this committee. If you are interested, call Director Mark J. Camp at (419) 530-2398 or e-mail at
