During exhibit set-up the forms for a project must be present for the project to pass display and safety. Forms are either the MS Super EZ and the project procedures OR the Intel ISEF forms which must include Forms 1, 1A, 1B and Research Plan. Other forms are needed for certain types of projects. It is the responsibility of the adult sponsors to make sure parents have copies of all necessary forms if the parents will be setting up the display.
