IMPORTANT PROJECT RULES

Before experimentation begins, the Montana Region II Science and Engineering Fair Scientific Review Committee (SRC) must review and approve projects involving human participants; vertebrate animals; potentially hazardous biological agents; and hazardous chemicals, activities, or devices. 

Note: If a project involves the testing of a student designed invention, prototype, or concept by a human, an IRB review and approval may be required prior to experimentation.  

Please expect three to five working days for the local IRB/SRC to review your submission.
