It is important that every stage of the Registration process be clearly understood. It is also very important that the definitions be clearly understood. This is particularly important when selecting the type of school or education a participant is receiving. The distinction between a PRIVATE SCHOOL and an INDEPENDENT ENTRY, for example, is very important!
This form is not to be completed by individual students or prospective participants, except in the case of "Home Schooled" students, or certain "Independent Entries" as defined below. It should normally be completed by the teacher responsible for all science fair participation in your school, and by only one person per school, since there will be only one allocation of passwords per school. Violation of this condition by a prospective participant will result in automatic exclusion from any TSF events for 2017.
The present form has two purposes.
The first purpose is to allow you to pre-register your school's intent to participate, so that we can email to you a set of passwords that will allow you or your school's students to register projects for the Toronto Fair. This pre-registration is a mandatory part of the registration process.
The second purpose is to allow you to submit information about your school's plans to participate in the Toronto Science Fair this year, to allow us to plan appropriately.
Each project to be registered on the TSF web-site will require a pre-assigned password. Your school's set of unique passwords will only be emailed to the official contact person for each school who completes the form below.
The number of passwords sent in each case will correspond exactly to the number of projects your school is allowed to enter in the TSF Fair. Thus it is very important that you supply complete and correct information in the form below. The email address supplied must be valid, and we encourage you to use the email addresses assigned by your schools where that is possible. An email address that does not function correctly will result in it being impossible for your school's projects to be entered at all.
Each password consists solely of four or five upper-case letters. The list of passwords will have blanks between the passwords.
One Registration Password must be supplied for each project as it is registered on the web-site. Please ensure that you register projects before the deadline, March 1, 2017.
Registration of projects cannot proceed without the corresponding number of passwords.
Participants must live in the City of Toronto (previously known as Metropolitan Toronto, with postal codes beginning with the letter 'M') or attend and represent a school in the City of Toronto. Students living outside Toronto should contact their local regional science fair organization.
Each school is assigned a fixed quota of projects, as explained elsewhere on this web-site to ensure a fair distribution of places for participation in the All-Toronto Science Fair on January 2017.
All rules and regulations will be strictly enforced, and failure to comply with any rule can result in the disqualification of a project from the Fair. In particular you should ensure that project dimensions comply with the rules to avoid disappointment.
