Although we are not officially a member of the International Science Fair Organization, we generally follow their rules about project size and use of animals. We do not allow any animals or cultures to be a part of the project display. If your research plans to use human participants, vertebrate animals, potentially hazardous biological agents, or hazardous chemicals, activities, devices, please visit INTEL ISEF rules site to determine if you need to submit additional forms or receive approval of your research by our review committee before beginning research.
There are seven categories for the entries. It is very important that students select the appropriate category for their projects. The projects must be in one of the following areas:
Behavioral and Social Sciences
Earth and Space Science
Engineering and Computer Science
Physics and Mathematical Sciences
Students are reminded that Science and Engineering Fair projects should include laboratory, field, or theoretical research.
Projects may be individual or team. The judges are looking for creative ability, scientific thought/engineering goals, thoroughness, skill, and clarity. For more information on judging criteria, please follow the link listed above.
There are two divisions: Junior Division (grades 6-9) and Senior Division (grades 10-12).
