Regulated/Registered Research Institution Use

RRI Project:  Grades 9 to 12 only.
The student research or engineering project is conducted under the guidance of professional research staff from…

1. A Regulated Research Institution. (Government regulations for institution’s use of animals in accordance with rules of IACUC or Good Laboratory Practice,(GLP), etc.) —

2. A professional research staff at a company or government lab. —

3. With advice and guidance of a professional research scientist or engineer. —

4. Mentors, other than teachers, who provide substantial guidance, data or sophisticated equipment not available in schools. —

Judges will use Form 1C to determine student contribution to the research.

Note: Middle school  projects for grades 6-8 may NOT be conducted in the facilities of a Regulated Research Institution.

 

If you are a student headed for a Registered Research Institution (RRI) to gain valuable research experience during the summer months you may wish to consider entering your project into the  Synopsys Championship.

Here are important points to consider:

  • Make sure the PI of the lab you are working in reads the Intel ISEF Rules and Guidelines before you begin. In previous fairs, projects were deemed “fail to qualify” because the PI did not understand that SSP’s Rules are more stringent that those for NIH etc.
    https://student.societyforscience.org/international-rules-pre-college-science-research
  • All paperwork has to be dated prior to start of experimentation so fill out the forms before you begin. Which forms are needed for your specific project may be determined by using the Wizard on the SSP web site.
    https://apps2.societyforscience.org/wizard/index.asp
  • We will only accept RRI projects from students in grades 9-12 with the proviso that they were working legally at the RRI.
  • You may only present work you have done yourself for your project.
  • If you have a lab partner you may only enter a team project with another Santa Clara County student.

How are winners to the California State Science Fair (CSSF) selected?

CSSF  Judging FAQs
Each year, we are allotted a number of spots in the California State Science Fair by the State Science Fair organization  The CSSF allocation is calculated on a 5 year rolling average of the number of projects from our local Championship which won at the state fair level.  For 2016, we have been allotted 97 slots at State Fair.

The projects were ranked on fair day by the CSSF judging team, and the top 97 projects are notified that they qualify to attend at the Awards Ceremony.  Note: Category judging results do not determine CSSF judging results. First place category winners are not necessarily eligible to attend.  The Synopsys Championship has more first place winners than the slots allotted to us by the State Fair.

Of the qualified projects, the top 12 (6 each at middle school and high school) will also be ‘sponsored’ financially by SCVSEFA.   These Championship winners are given a paid trip to State Fair in Los Angeles, and reimbursed the $30 Application fee.   The next 87 projects are not financially sponsored in any way by SCVSEFA..

If you received a CSSF eligibility letter at the Awards ceremony  indicating that you are a qualified student or are listed on this website as eligible, go to the State Fair website http://www.usc.edu/CSSF/  and register online and pay your application fee immediately.

If qualified students do not want to attend, their spots will become available to persons/projects who are wait-listed alternates according to the Synopsys Championship ranking of the scientific merit of their project. Alternates will not be qualified to attend the fair unless a Qualified winner does not apply, thereby making space available.

 

How are winners to Intel International Science and
Engineering Fair (ISEF) selected?

The selection of projects for Intel ISEF is called Grand Prize Judging. The Grand Prize Judges are specifically at the Synopsys Championship to choose the top projects for grades 9 through 12.  They are highly qualified, experienced judges with differing areas of expertise among them.

The top 10 high school projects at the Synopsys Championship are awarded Grand Prize, and are given a paid trip to Intel ISEF which this year is in PHOENIX, AZ, May 8-13, 2016

We’ve discovered that during our recent web-site conversion from Google Sites to WordPress the content of some policy pages got out of sync with the policies that were in force during the 2014 Synopsys Championship. We are currently reviewing this page and other policy pages on this site for accuracy.

Student Ethics

It is our expectation that students and their parents will follow the Rules and Guidelines for participation in the Synopsys Championship and will abide by the ethics statement on Form 1B.

Harassment

The Santa Clara Valley Science and Engineering Fair (SCVSEFA) is committed to providing an environment for students, volunteers, and employees free of harassment of any kind. SCVSEFA will not tolerate harassment of students, volunteers, employees or anyone else associated with the Synopsys Championship.

Unacceptable Conduct

Any harassing conduct that interferes with a student’s, a volunteer’s, or an employee’s ability to participate in the Synopsys Championship or that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment for a student, volunteer, or employee is unacceptable.

Harassment may be verbal, visual, or physical in nature. Specific examples of prohibited harassing conduct include, but are not limited to: slurs, jokes, statements, notes, letters, electronic communication, pictures, drawings, posters, cartoons, gestures, unwelcome physical contact, assault, or persistent, repeated requests for exceptions to Synopsys Championship rules, policies, or guidelines.

Consequences

Students who violate this policy may have their project removed from competition or awards rescinded. Harassment by parents may result in their child’s project being removed from competition or awards rescinded.

Volunteers, including judges, who violate this policy will be asked to leave the Synopsys Championship and will be removed from our list of volunteers. A volunteer Director who is found to have violated this policy will be removed from the Board.

Any employee who, after an investigation, is found to have violated this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

Reporting Incidents of Harassment

If you feel that you have been harassed or feel you have witnessed harassment, please report the incident to any member of the SCVSEFA Board of Directors.

A subcommittee of the Board of Directors will investigate the complaint and attempt to resolve the issue sensitively, promptly and effectively and, if warranted, take appropriate corrective action. Every effort will be made, to the extent possible, to maintain confidentiality.

Procedure for Filing a Concern/Suggestion

  1. Send a signed, written message describing the suggestion or concern to the fair manager or a director of SCVSEFA.
  2. If the initial response is not adequate, please request clarification from appropriate subcommittee.
  3. If response is still not adequate, please request discussion time at a future SCVSEFA Board of Directors meeting.

Procedure for Board Member Receiving a Concern/Suggestion

  1. If you are knowledgeable on the question/issue, please attempt to answer. Please blind copy the appropriate committee members. If you are not knowledgeable, please forward to the appropriate board/committee member to answer.
  2. If the issue does not appear to be addressed or resolved, the appropriate subcommittee will review the issue/responses and provide additional information, copying President-elect or designated SCVSEFA Board of Director’s recipient.
  3. If the issue is still not resolved and board meeting time is requested, the subcommittee provides history and background and recommended guidance.

Thanks for contacting us! We will get in touch with you shortly.
