State Science Day

State Science Day is an event sponsored by the Ohio Academy of Science since 1949.

In 2002, The Ohio State University entered into agreement to coordinate the event locally at no cost to the Academy. The event was assigned to the Office of Continuing Education events management team, now part of the Office of Distance Education and eLearning. Coordination includes facilities, volunteers, logistics, supplies, program design and printing, security, parking, and overall support. The current agreement expires in 2016.
