Santa Barbara County Science Fair
Santa Barbara County Water Agency and the Network of Santa Barbara County Water Providers will once again be awarding the special Water Conservation category award at the 2020 Santa Barbara County Science Fair
The 2020 Science Fair will be held March 12 - 13 at UC Santa Barbara. Registration for the Fair will open in December 16, 2019. The best way for student to prepare is to review the Guidelines for Students as you carry out your research and plan your display..
Requirements for Projects Involving Vertebrate Animals
In order to help ensure the humane treatment of animals used in research, most projects involving vertebrate animals will require approval in advance from a science review committee. The only exception to this requirement is for projects which observe the animals in a natural environment. This approval may be granted by a review committee at your school, an existing review board at a college or university, or you may submit your project the Science Review Committee (SRC) organized by the Science Fair.
To document approval, download and complete the Request Form from our web site. A completed copy of this form, signed by the reviewing body, should be attached to your lab book. If you have questions about the review process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Requirements for Projects Involving Human Subjects
In a similar vein with the vertebrate research requirements, we are implementing additional requirements for research involving human subjects. All human subjects projects need receive prior approval from a review body and comply with the Informed Consent rules included in the Guidelines for Students document. This includes providing each potential subject with a Letter of Information and receiving a signed document of Informed Consent prior to participation.
If the subject is a minor, the Informed Consent form must also be signed by the person's parent/guardian unless the project is clearly very low risk. To help get started, some basic templates for a Letter of Information and Informed Consent Form are available for download.
