Participation of Humans

Juggling at the Canada Wide Science Fair

Strict rules govern the participation of humans in science fair projects. We follow the same rules as are used at the Canada Wide Science Fair, which can be found on the National Ethics Committee web site.

If you are intending to have humans participate in your project, including yourself and your immediate family, please read all the pages relating to the participation of humans very carefully.

First, decide if your project is Low Risk or Significant Risk. There are separate Policy Documents for each:

Policy Human Participation – Low Risk.
Policy Human Participation – Significant Risk

If you have any questions, please contact the Chief Judge before you start your experiments, by selecting the Judging link on the Contact page in the footer below.
