Science Fair Organization and Registration
Rules and Regulations
All student research projects in grads 9-12 must adhere to "International Rules for Precollege Science Research" published by the Society for Science and the Public, Science Education Department, 1719 N Street, NW, Washington D. C. 20036.
All projects are required to submit a minimum of three forms. Additional forms are required for projects involving subjects where either student or subject safety is a concern. Specific rules and required forms can be determined by using the studen questionnaire in the registration system created by SEFI. Teachers may create a master account to enable them to manage student research projects more efficiently. Many projects that require additional forms will need to be submitted to the Regional Fair's Scientific Review Committee
Display and presentation
It is customary for students to prepare a dislpay board for the science fair competition. Ther are a number of resources available to help students and teachers on layout. We have prepared a sample template that can be used to organize the student display. An Adobe Acrobat version is available for download Click Here to Download File
Additionally, all student displays must adhere to the Display and Safety Guidelines as printed in the International Rules for Pre-college Science Research: Guidelines for Science and Engineering Fairs 2011-2012
