District Science Day Materials

Teachers - read below for the most up to date student information for District Science Day

For the 2021-2022 school year, plans include a return to 17 separate DSD registration sites which will be administered by each respective District Council. Milestone requirements must align with the State Science Day site to facilitate a seamless transfer of registration data of promoted projects. These sites will be designed to allow each District to decide whether to provide in-person judging only, in-person of most projects with virtual judging for students unable to physically attend (hybrid approach), or virtual judging only. Regardless of the District’s choice, all projects must be registered on-line and all milestones must be completed. If a District is unable to provide any form of District Science Day, students from that District may participate in a separate virtually judged District Science Day administered by the OAS office, to be known as “District 18”.
