Please fill out this form in addition to the ISEF Student Checklist and Research Plan.  This form is due to Carol Swalley by October 29, 2019. No late forms will be accepted.


Permission to participate (to be filled out by Parent/Guardian):


Transportation to and from the Science Fair is the parent or guardian’s responsibility.  The District cannot and does not assume any responsibility for the safety of the driver or passengers, training of drivers, condition of vehicles, adequacy for the use or purpose intended or any other matters related to any non-District transportation.


Participants might use hand tools, scissors, paints, markers, sewing items, wire, weights, etc. and engage in strenuous activities while working on a project. While accidents and injuries are rare in the program, there is a risk of injury to participants while performing an experiment. No amount of instruction or precautions will totally eliminate all risk of injury. Parents must supervise their child while performing the experiments possibly required by the student’s chosen project.  Participants have the responsibility to help reduce the risk of injury by participating in the activity in a safe and effective manner.  Participants must complete and submit all required paperwork before beginning an experiment.
