If your experiment includes human test subjects than you will need to do the following:
First: Fill out JUST THE TOP PART of the first page of Form 4 2014. This needs to be returned to Ms. Prihar so she can get the appropriate signatures.
Second: Have each of your humans sign a copy of the second page of Form 4 2014.
If you are trying to remember the rules for adding citations and resources (e.g., a bibliography) into your background research paper the following links can help.

CT State Science Fair 2014 Student Guide
This is a copy of the Connecticut State Fair Student Guide for 2014. All the information you may want to know about the state fair can likely be found in this handout including the rubric by which the projects will be judged at the State level. The rubric for science class is different. So if you want to try for an award, consider the State Science Fair judging criteria. If you just want a great grade, stick to the two science class science fair rubrics above.
Welcome to the 2013-2014 Annual Solomon Schechter Day School Science Fair blog. Participation in the Science Fair provides our students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the Scientific Inquiry Process to answer a testable question that interests them.
