Working with a Mentor

Postby sreevidyaganga » Mon Sep 24, 2018 5:32 pm

Is it possible to submit a research project to a science fair like Regeneron STS that is a joint project? I worked under a mentor over the summer at a local university on a research project, and was wondering if I could submit the work I did to a science project. I feel iffy because technically the research is not completely hundred percent my work, but I did make significant contributions to the project.

Hello and welcome to Science Buddies,

The best way to see if your work would be eligible is for you, your mentor, and perhaps your high school science teacher to look at the eligibility:

Note that the deadline for the 2019 competition is Nov 14, 2018.

Be sure to let us know if you have more questions, and, if you do apply, let us know how you do!
