        Project Rules : Levels & Divisions

Levels -

Junior Level Grades 7 & 8
Intermediate Level Grades 9 & 10
Senior Level Grades 11 - OAC

Divisions -

A Life Science project examines some aspect of the life or lifestyle of an organism.
A Biotechnology project is the application of knowledge of biological systems to solve a problem, create a product or provide a service.   Biotechnology projects will fall into one of three subject fields:  crop development, animal science, and microbials.
A Physical Science project studies an abiotic phenomenon in order to understand the relation of identified factors, perhaps including a cause and effect relationship.
An Engineering project applies physical science knowledge to solve a problem or achieve a purpose.
A Mathematics or Computer Sciences project is a project that may involve computer design, programming, languages, techniques and general operations. If mathematical in nature, it involves calculus, geometry, abstract algebra, number theory, statistics, complex analysis, probability and other topics in pure and applied mathematics.
An Earth and Environmental Science project involves the application of any of various sciences, as geography, geology, or meteorology, that deal with the earth, its composition, or any of its changing aspects, or which deals with the physical, chemical, and biological conditions of the environment and their effect on organisms.

The Chief Judge may recommend a change of division to allow for the fairest adjudication of the students' work but the final decision regarding the division placement rests with the student exhibitor and their regional delegate.
