Following documents are created to help you make a successful application. Make sure to read all rules and regulations before you start your project, since there are specific forms to be filled for certain type of projects even before you start your research (Such as animal or human subject research).
Affiliated science and engineering fairs require documentation signed by responsible adults that the students and their research subjects are safe throughout the process. Your sponsor (a teacher, parent or mentor) must review all of your procedures BEFORE the student begins experimenting or building. Sometimes additional adults sign forms using their specific expertise to make sure you and your subjects are safe. Those adults’ signatures and dates prove that evaluation was completed.
Please review the listing of the Terra NYC categories and sub-categories before choosing the category that most accurately describes your project.Many projects could easily fit into more than one category. We highly recommend that you review the entire listing of the categories and sub-categories before choosing the category that most accurately describes your project. Ask yourself the following questions to help in the selection of a category:Who will be the most qualified to judge my project? What area of expertise is the most important for the judge to have? (For example, a medical background or an engineering background?)What is the emphasis of my project? What characteristic of my project is the most innovative, unique or important? (For example, is it the application in medicine or the engineering of the machine? Is it inserting the proper gene or the method of computer mapping to demonstrate the results?).
