Welcome to WESO 2020!
Following the recommendations of the Health Department and State Authorities ordering the closure of schools and organizations/businesses to cancel large events, the WESO board has made the decision to cancel WESO 2020. While we know this cancellation will be disappointing to our students, coaches, and volunteers whom have already begun preparing, we must put the health and safety of our community first.
Ideas for Science at Home
We are aware of the disappointment our scientist/students are feeling. We are looking into how we could help. Here is a list of resources for easy, parent led science play. Please pass it along to anyone you think would like it:

While the Cincinnati Zoo is closed and kids are home from school, let us help make your children’s hiatus from school fun and educational.
Join us for a Home Safari Facebook Live each day at 3pm EDT where we will highlight one of our amazing animals and include an activity you can do from home.
To watch our live videos just go to the Cincinnati Zoo Facebook page and scroll down. It will appear like the most recent post on our feed.
