There are two types of Team Projects at NWSES.
Small Team Projects (2 or 3 members) at the NWSES compete within the same categories as individual projects. One Small Team Project is usually chosen as an ISEF finalist.
High School Teams larger than three members compete as Large Team Projects in their own category, but are not eligible for ISEF or Intel NWSE. Large Teams can be a whole class or a club or even have members from different schools. Middle School Large Teams compete in the same categories as small teams at Intel NWSE.
Small Team Projects Rules
A Small Team Project cannot be converted to an individual project or vice versa during a single year. A continuing project may add a new member or convert to an individual project, as long as one original team member remains.
Each team should appoint a team leader to be a contact person. However, each member of the team should be able to serve as spokesperson, be fully involved with the project, and be familiar with all aspects of the project. The final work should reflect the coordinated efforts of all team members and will be evaluated using the same rules and judging criteria as individual projects, except that teamwork is added as a criterion.
Each member must submit a 1B or MS Super EZ Form. However, team members must jointly complete the online registration form, the abstract and all other required forms. Full names of all team members must appear on the abstract and forms.
