All other endorsements must be submitted by November 22, 2020
Students who received an endorsement last
year and are reusing their project may email
a copy of their 2019/2020 endorsement and
get it updated. They MAY NOT complete any
new experimentation at HOME. A NEW
endorsement would only be for students who
are able to complete their experimentation
in a Bio-Safey Level 1 lab.
requests MUST be made PRIOR to experimentation
in order to ensure the safety of the test
subject(s) and/or the scientist. The
project plans are reviewed by the Scientific
Review Committee and, if safe, the endorsement
is granted and the experiment may be carried
out. Permission to carry out an
experiment CANNOT be given to one that has
already been completed.
