What We Do
Founded in 1891, The Ohio Academy of Science (OAS) is the leading not-for-profit organization in Ohio. Our student programs are designed to create a “Culture of Innovation” and create tangible pathways to Ohio colleges, universities, and career technical centers (CTCs), and allow students to approach post-secondary education opportunities with a true sense of purpose for related STEM degrees and certifications.
In addition, with programs such as Ohio STEP and State Science Day, students have opportunities to compete for more than $700,000 in Ohio-based scholarships and awards that align with and support their academic and career endeavors.
