Registration Not Currently Available

The purpose of the Believe in Ohio program is to create a “Culture of Innovation” in Ohio high schools, promote Ohio as a great place for students to continue their educations and careers, and provide college scholarships to encourage Ohio students to remain in Ohio by focusing on the practical application of STEM and related fields and the development of an entrepreneurial mindset and critical thinking skills that students will need in the future. Believe in Ohio is accomplishing this through a multi-faceted program.

Teachers are granted the flexibility to have their students develop their STEM Plans based on what works for them and their classroom schedule. Teachers may have their students do their plans during the Fall Semester or Spring Semester, or over the course of the entire school year. Similarly, teachers may have their students develop plans on a compressed timeframe (e.g. over a 4-6 week period) or spread their students’ work over the course of the full school year, or anything in between. Local high school competitions will be run by teachers who will apply the BiO standards, rules, and grading/judging rubrics. Local judges will be recruited by the participating teachers. (Teachers should review the recommendations about how to conduct their local competitions as noted on the Believe in Ohio website at www.BelieveinOhio.org, and in the Competition Standards, Rules and Instructional Booklet.)
