Science Review Committee
The State Science Review Committee (SRC) reviews each project entered into the EMTSEF to ensure eligibility. Each project must be cleared by the SRC prior to project setup. The SRC is comprised of volunteers and includes at least one biomedical scientist, one science educator, and at least one other member. The members of the SRC are knowledgeable about research subject matter and regulations. They review the projects for required forms and address any problems before projects are allowed to be set up. The SRC is trained to examine each project for "red flags" that suggest additional forms are necessary, or the project may have eligibility issues. The goal of the SRC is to ensure that all projects are safe and meet the guidelines set by the International Science and Engineering Fair.
