School Review Process
  • Teachers need to evaluate all project proposals
    to determine whether they require IRB or SRC
    review and/or approval.

11
Institutional Review Board (IRB)
  • Approves projects that involve
  • Human subjects,
  • Vertebrate animals
  • Hazardous biological agents
  • Drug Enforcement Agency controlled substances
  • before a student can
    begin experimentation
  • Membership
  • Science Teacher
  • School Administrator
  • Someone knowledgeable about evaluating risk (MD,
    PA, RN, psychiatrist, psychologist, licensed
    social worker)

12
Scientific Review Committee (SRC)
  • Reviews some projects before experimentation and
    some projects after experimentation
  • Required SRC Members (at least 1 of each)
  • biomedical scientist (Ph.D., M.D., D.V.M.,
    D.D.S., D.O.)
  • science teacher
  • one other member

13
Regional Fair Review Process
  • The Austin Energy Regional Science Festival SRC
    will review ALL projects before they may be
    admitted to the fair.
  • When in doubt, fill it out!

14
Adult Sponsor
  • Has solid background in science
  • Maintains close contact with student during the
    course of the project
  • Oversees that project is within rules and
    guidelines
  • Responsible for health and safety of student and
    test subjects
  • Completes Form 1 Checklist for Adult Sponsor

15
Qualified Scientist
  • Required only for projects involving human
    subjects, vertebrate animals, hazardous
    biological agents, or DEA-controlled substances
  • Must have advanced degree related to students
    area of research and be familiar with rules
    governing that area of research
  • May reside in another state (in that case, a
    Designated Supervisor must oversee students
    experimentation)
  • May be the same person as the Adult Sponsor
  • Completes Form 2 QS Form

16
Designated Supervisor
  • Supervises project experimentation when Qualified
    Scientist cannot directly supervise
  • Need not have advanced degree, but must be
    thoroughly familiar with students project and
    trained in the area of research
  • Animal Care Supervisor for animal projects
  • Supervises projects using Hazardous Chemicals,
    Activities or Devices

17
Whats New for 2008?Intel ISEF Changes and
Modifications
  • Projects no longer considered Human Subjects
    research (and do not require IRB pre-approval)
  • product testing of a student invention (if it
    doesnt pose a health hazard)
  • a project where no personal data is collected
  • a project where feedback received is only about
    the product
  • Rules www.sciserv.org/isef/primer/rules.asp

18
Whats New for 2008?Intel ISEF Changes and
Modifications
  • Some vertebrate animal studies may be conducted
    at a non-regulated research site (home, school,
    farm, ranch, in the field, etc.).
  • Naturally-occurring plant pathogens may be
    studied (not cultured) at home, but may not be
    introduced into a home/garden environment. (Not
    exempt if cultured in a Petri dish that could
    potentially be contaminated).
  • Production of ethyl alcohol is allowed at home
    under supervision of a parent/guardian must
    meet Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau
    rules www.ttb.gov/spirits/faq.shtml

19
Whats New for 2008?Intel ISEF Form Changes
  • Student Checklist IA and Student Checklist
    IA-TEAM have been combined into one formStudent
    Checklist IA.
  • An additional box has been added to Potentially
    Hazardous Biological Agents Form 6A to document a
    required letter from institutions that do not
    have a review process for this type of study.
  • Be sure students use 2007/2008 Intel ISEF forms!

20
Intel ISEF Forms
  • Forms that ALL students must complete
  • Form 1 Checklist for Adult Sponsor
  • Form 1A Student Checklist
  • Form 1B Approval Form
  • A Research Plan
  • An Abstract
  • Rules Wizard! www.sciserv.org/isef/students/wizard
    /index.asp

21

Certification Form
  • This form is not in the back of the Intel ISEF
    handbook
  • Obtain from AERSF site or the Intel ISEF
    website--print and complete by hand

Human Subjects Studies
  • Involve living individuals where there is
  • Intervention or interaction with subjects
  • and/or
  • Collection of identifiable private information
  • Not Human Subjects studies
  • Product testing
  • Review of publicly available data
  • Observations at unrestricted public settings

25
Human Subjects Studies
  • Require IRB review and approval of research plan
    before experimentation begins
  • IRB evaluates and determines
  • Risk level
  • Requirement for informed consent
  • Requirement for Qualified Scientist

26
Risk Activities(more than minimal risk)
  • Exercise
  • Ingestion
  • Emotional stress survey, stimuli
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Breech of confidentiality

27
Restrictions - propulsion,hazardous materials or
activities
  • Jr. Division students may NOT conduct a project
    that includes
  • discharging a firearm or air pressure canister
    devices
  • chemicals hazardous to student health, or
    radioactive materials
  • any other activity or substances that present a
    danger to the student.
  • Sr. Division students who design experiments that
    include
  • discharging a firearm or air pressure canister
    devices
  • chemicals hazardous to student health, or
    radioactive materials
  • any other activity or substance that presents a
    danger to the student
  • must have PRE-approval by the IRB and they must
    carefully follow the Intel ISEF Rules and
    Guidelines.

28
ISEF SRC 101 PowerPoint
  • We highly recommend you view the presentation

  • www.sciserv.org/isef/about/rules_regulations.asp

29
Scientist Training Program
  • For special populations of students
  • Available in all divisions for individual or team
    projects
  • The basic rules and guidelines are the same, but
    the paperwork requirements may differ
  • Notify us if student has specific requirements
  • Students may not proceed to the state fair

30
Scientist Training Program

    team projects
  • Note the number of participating Scientist
    Training projects (with the reduced fee of 5) at
    the bottom of the School Registration Form 
  • There is only one school fee for registration of
    all students at your school (ST and regular entry
    students included)
