2. Some project topics must be approved by the Collier SRC BEFORE students may begin to work on that project.
N THE TOPICS BELOW REQUIRE COLLLIER SRC PRE-APPROVAL & ADDITIONAL SPECIALIZED FORMS that must be completed and approved by the Collier Scientific Review Committee (SRC) or the Collier Institutional Review Board (IRB) BEFORE any data has been collected and NO LATER than October 15 of the current school year. Individual schools may NOT create their own SRC or IRB.
N THE COLLIER SRC PRE-APPROVAL PROCESS CAN TAKE OVER A MONTH because the process often requires students to resubmit forms and documentation multiple times in order for the project to comply with all applicable rules and regulations and be approved. Be advised that few students are successfull in completing the Collier SRC pre-approval process because of the time and effort that this process requires of the student.
N PROJECTS THAT REQUIRE COLLIER SRC PRE-APPROVAL MUST ALSO CITE SPECIFIC REFERENCE SOURCES that are listed in the ISEF rules in order to demonstrate the knowledge of and an understanding of all mandatory safety procedures, science protocols and disposal procedures.
N DO NOT SELECT TOPICS THAT REQUIRE COLLIER SRC PRE-APPROVAL without first carefully considering the extra time and effort they demand.
