A Canfield High School student joined more than 1,100 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students in grades 5-12 at the 68th annual State Science Day. Jonathan Grant received a Superior Award. His project was The Effect of Chiral Molecules on Polarized Light: Impacts to Biochemistry.
This event is hosted by The Ohio State University each year, and the STEM scholars- from over 315 schools throughout Ohio – competed for more than $1 million in scholarships and awards. State Science Day is a program of The Ohio Academy of Science. The Ohio State University, American Electric Power, The Ohio Environmental Education Fund and Battelle sponsored State Science Day, with The Ohio State University Office of Distance Education and eLearning coordinating the event locally.
“This event showcases excellence in student research and the emphasis that is placed on STEM-education in Ohio” said Michael E. Woytek, Interim CEO of The Ohio Academy of Science.
