Program Summary: This fall, the Believe in Ohio program is holding STEM Commercialization and Entrepreneurship Forums at twelve colleges and universities across Ohio.  Ohio high school and middle school students (grades 7 and 8) are invited to attend.  Attending students will participate in an extraordinary program that will open their eyes to the future, inspire them to “think outside the box”, and allow them an opportunity to interact with four entrepreneurial STEM researchers and practitioners who will discuss with students how their ideas and visions of the future will shape the future.  As part of the program, students working in teams will “pitch” their innovative new product and problem solving solutions to their peers.

Program Details: Each Forum will begin promptly at 9:30 am and end at 1:00 pm. Students may attend as part of a teacher or parent chaperoned group (limit 30 students per school). As capacity at each venue ranges from 150 to 300 students, registrations will be accepted as space is available. Transportation subsidies are available on a first come first served basis to schools that bring 15 or more students. 

Please note the STEM Forum at Kent State University New Philadelphia Campus is CLOSED.
