ISEF Rules and Guidelines

Students should read the rules for the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). The Beal Bank Southern Nevada Regional Science & Engineering Fair (SNRSEF) rules are the same as ISEF.

Required ISEF Forms for ALL Projects

Certain forms are required for all student projects. Depending on the type of project, students also may need to submit additional forms.

Required Forms for Selected Projects — Use the ISEF Rules Wizard

Students are responsible for determining what ISEF forms are required, if any. SNRSEF requires the same forms as ISEF. Students must submit any required forms to the sponsoring teacher and SNRSEF before beginning work on their project.

SNRSEF Project Categories

The SNRSEF project categories are different from the ISEF categories.

ISEF Guidelines for Students

Before students begin their projects, find out what steps ISEF recommends.
Note: SNRSEF does not require a research paper, but does require an abstract. See the Student Handbook. Also, see the Document Library.

Display and Safety Regulations

Students should read the display rules for ISEF before beginning their project. SNRSEF rules for display are the same as ISEF.

Past ISEF Results

Students are strongly encouraged to see what kind of projects were completed by Grand Award Winners at previous International Fairs.
