A science fair project should be fun to do. Science research does involve some risk, both to you the researcher, and to others involved in the project (including animals). The rules of the International Science and Engineering Fair are designed to minimize this risk and promote safe research. Please read through the rules that pertain to your research project. If you have questions about the rules, please discuss them with your Adult Sponsor (teacher) and/or the Regional Science Review Committee.
