Any changes to the modality of the 2024 Science Fair will be posted on this website, on our facebook page, and emailed to School Coordinators.

Here is what you need to be aware of:

  • The rules and overall format of the posters will remain the same (2024 Packet coming soon) Projects that use human subjects, biological materials, or potentially harmful materials will still need to provide the appropriate paperwork for the SRC (Grades 5 – 12). ISEF created a really nice rules wizard to help students determine what they need to do before they submit their paperwork to Society for Science (SRC) Rules Wizard.
