•  Forms


    You will notice the forms below in GREEN are required for ALL CRSEF entries and the other forms below that will need SRC (Science Review Committee) approval before commencement.

    Generally ALL projects must be checked by the teacher to confirm they do not need SRC and that all safety concerns are addressed. 

    DEADLINE for SRC PRE-Approval is October 5th, 2023

    Generally, 95% of projects do NOT need SRC approval. 

    Projects that need pre-approval include: any vertebrate animal use, any project that could be potentially hazardous to the student (fire, projectiles, field work, etc), Potientially Hazardous Biological Agents which include algae, bacteria, fungus, dangerous chemicals (PHBAS) (these are not allowed at all for middle schoolers).

    *Absolutely NO human-human experiments or surveys will be allowed.

    SRC Pre-Approval means the student has communicated the project plan to the teacher and SRC Chair and received the proper EXTRA forms and submitted them electronically for approval by the deadline. 


    Please direct SRC questions to Assistant Director; Kandi Follis
