Projex Pro Use at ISEF Science Fairs

According to Lisa Icenroad, Program Manager, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair at the Society for Science, there is currently no rule against presentation boards that display iPad or other tablets.

At Projex Boards, we recommend that students fully charge their tablet before presentations and bring an auxiliary tablet battery to eliminate the need for power cords and power supply. Auxiliary batteries can also help you to achieve a better placement since you will not need to be near a wall to have power supply.

Intel ISEF Display and Safety Regulations

Photograph/Image Display Requirements

Display of photographs other than that of the finalist must have a photo release signed by the subject, and if under 18 years of age, also by the guardian of the subject. Sample consent text: “I consent to the use of visual images (photos, videos, etc.) involving my participation/my child’s participation in this research.” (These forms must be available upon request by a Display & Safety inspector, but shall not be displayed.)

Finalists using audio-visual or multi-media presentations (for example, 35mm slides; videotapes; images, graphics, animations, etc., displayed on computer monitors; or other non-print presentation methods) must be prepared to show the entire presentation to the Display and Safety Inspectors before the project is approved.
