Friday, Dec. 17, 2021, or Before Student Begins their Project

*Whichever Date Occurs First For Projects That Require Prior Approval by a Scientific Review Committee

For projects using vertebrate animals or bio-hazards (e.g. bacteria), human participants, or hazardous chemicals, prior approval from a school Institutional Review Board is required. The school IRB consists of at least an educator (not the project teacher), a school administrator, and a human risk evaluator (school nurse, counselor, etc.). Contact the Beal Bank science fair director if you have questions about your school's IRB or if a project needs prior approval. Once complete, appropriate paperwork needs to be forwarded to the Beal Bank science fair director for approval prior to experimentation.
