known as SRC (Scientific Review Committee) Forms
affiliated with state and international fairs, and therefore use
the forms compliant with the international rules for science
research and science fair competition. These forms are used for
students of all grades and levels of competition, from school
and local fairs to regional, state, and international

All Intel ISEF Project Forms- Interactive
student prints this form after registering online
at the end of registering
online - see the small row of buttons above your registration
information - or you can log
back into your student account and either print it or email a
PDF of it to one email address at a time (parent,
student, teacher, etc.) after registering online for printing at
another location. Each form is preprinted with the student's
name - so for teams, each person may log in to their own student
account to print their own required Media Release Form.
- NOTE: The stamp or embossed seal is provided only at
ISEF for international competition and is not required for
school, local, regional, or state competition. The form may be
used without the seal for TCRSF or state science fair. The
Abstract is required to be in at least 4 places for competition:
posted vertically in the exhibit, a copy of it in the SRC forms
paperwork at the exhibit during competition, a copy of it
submitted in the SRC forms paperwork submitted to the regional
fair as part of the required registration, and entered into our
fair's online abstracts (student log in accessing the
registration). It is a great idea to keep a Word or text file of
the abstract for easy copy-pasting into the various places the
abstract needs to be entered.
ALL SCIENCE FAIR TEACHERS, ADVISORS AND STUDENTS FROM THE

Project Registration, please save our volunteers time by
organizing your forms in this order (top of pile to back) AND
please print forms SINGLE SIDED (NOT duplex) on plain

not staple anything:
made out to TCRSF for registration fee (& electricity

cable) - one check may be used for multiple fees, but please
indicate what students, projects, papers, or electricity
fees are included in that check)
release form signed by parent (one for each student) - This
can be printed or emailed after registering online.
- This may be on the official ISEF Abstract form OR it may
be a document on plain paper, but please include the
student's first and last name, the title of the project, and
the grade the student is in (grades 6-12). MAKE SURE THE
WORD COUNT IS NO MORE THAN 250 WORDS!!! NOTE: We
require the abstract to be in a minimum of three places:

included in the forms paperwork (BOTH in the copy submitted
to the fair AND in the copy of all forms required to be at
the project for competition), AND the abstract must be
displayed vertically at the student's exhibit. (For regional
& state fairs, the abstract may be on the board (on the
ISEF form is optional), or in a plastic document holder or
frame on the table top of the exhibit display, or taped to
the front edge of the table; for ISEF, the abstract may NOT
be on the boards but will be displayed vertically.)
1 - Please make sure all appropriate boxes are checked and
date is BEFORE your start date listed on form 1A. We need
the date to show the date the adult supervisor approved the
project (said it was okay for the student to do this
project), NOT the current date the form is being filled out.
1B - This must be dated before the start date listed on Form
1A. We need the date to show the date the parent and student
knew the risks concerning their project and approved that
they could do this project (parent said it was okay for the
student to do this project), NOT the current date the form
is being filled out.
Research Plan - this is just a typed document that
includes: A.) Statement of the problem or question being
investigated, B.) Hypothesis, C.) Detailed procedure(s) -
(We need to know concentrations of chemicals, sources of
cell cultures or genetic material or sources of tissues
used, and your analysis plan.), and D.) Bibliography or
References: MINIMUM of 5 good references - and if you use a
website as a reference include the date accessed because
websites may change. If you have used one or more vertebrate
animals, then at least one reference must include
information on the care of that vertebrate animal.

this year's project! With form 7 you must include last year's
complete research plan and last year's abstract - clearly
labeled in the upper right corner with LASTNAME
YEAROFPROJECT. E.g. Smith, John - 2010, Smith, John -
2009, Smith, John - 2008. We need the research plan for last
year's project and the abstracts for last year's and all
previous year's projects done at the regional or above
Paper Registration, mail the media release form signed by
parent (one for each student) - This can be printed or emailed
