Rules and forms

Rules

Any scientist, whether experienced professional or student, must follow strict safety standards and specific operating rules in his or her work.

 

The Science Fair Rules are designed primarily to ensure your safety and that of the public.

 

Failure to comply with the Science Fair Rules can lead to disqualification of the exhibitor(s). It is therefore essential that you read them carefully! The 2018 Science Fair Rules will be available soon.
