Special Instructions Regarding Live Animals, Hazardous Substances, Etc.
  • Students must complete a Checklist for Adult Sponsor (Form 1), Research Plan (Form 1A) and Approval Form (Form 1B) prior to conducting research, as developed by Science Service for participation in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
  • Students with projects involving research risks or issues and special protocols (see 1-7 below) will be accepted for competition at District and State Science Days only if a copy of the approved Checklist for Adult Sponsor (Form 1), Research Plan (Form 1A), Approval Form (Form 1B), Consent Form and any other special forms are uploaded to ProjectBoard.
  • Students in grades 9-12 who expect to compete in a regional fair or in one of the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fairs leading to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) must complete a Checklist for Adult Sponsor (Form 1), Research Plan (Form 1A) and Approval Form (Form 1B), as well as all other general required forms.
  • Student research projects involving the following must be approved by a locally-appointed Scientific Review Committee prior to conducting research trials, collecting data or performing experiments.
    • Live vertebrate animals (including observation projects)
    • Human subjects
    • Recombinant DNA
    • Controlled substances
    • Hazardous substances and devices

    • Pathogenic agents
    The Research Plan (Form 1A) must use and adhere to all protocols for research risks and issues identified by the rules for competition in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair as determined by the local Scientific Review Committee. The membership of the local school Scientific Review Committee may be expanded to serve as an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee for review of vertebrate animal projects and/or an Institutional Review Board for review of projects with human subjects.
  • If a live vertebrate animal was used in a student’s research, s/he must have a copy of Vertebrate Animal Form 5B with Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee certificate.

To help determine which forms are necessary for your project, a Forms Wizard has been created.
