About 7DS

7 Days of STEM is Youngstown’s Regional Science Festival powered by OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology.  The 7-day, community celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics:

  • Provides a variety of hands-on, interactive learning opportunities rooted in STEM,
  • Showcases STEM events, organizations, institutions, professionals, & businesses in Youngstown and surrounding area,
  • Energizes inquisitiveness and provokes curiosity in the minds of learners of all ages in the greater Mahoning Valley and beyond

The festival is made possible in part with our membership to Science Festival Alliance & with more than 30 local and regional collaborators!  OH WOW! started the first festival with funds made possible through a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation‘s program in Public Understanding of Science and Technology and with the assistance of generous sponsors!
