Rules Wizard

The Rules Wizard has been designed as a first step to help you determine what forms and approvals are necessary before beginning a science fair project. Answer each of the 9 questions and a result page will provide a list of forms and information based on your answers; these forms and the accompanying rules should be reviewed closely with a teacher or mentor BEFORE experimentation begins.

This wizard is intended to be a helping tool, but cannot account for all specifics and situations of your individual project. Please be sure to review the International Rules. The ISEF SRC (Scientific Review Committee) is available via e-mail ( to answer any specific questions you may have.

You can move through the wizard screens by using the "Previous" and/or "Next" buttons or you can restart the wizard by using the "Clear & Restart" button at the top or bottom of each page.
