I hereby acknowledge by signing this document, that
I agree to volunteer my time as a ‘Scientific Review Committee Member’ to Evaluate science project synopses received online for participation in the ‘Initiative for Research and Innovation in STEM National Fair 2021’.
I agree to act in a positive and ethical manner in which each student synopsis is treated fairly and respectfully.
Privileged information or ideas that are obtained through my volunteer service will be kept confidential by me and all such information or ideas that I receive via the IRIS National Fair Evaluation will neither be used by me nor will I disclose such information or ideas to any other individual or third parties.

The IRIS National Fair promotes and nurtures science and scientific research among young Indian innovators. It recognises and rewards outstanding projects. It provides a platform for winning students to represent India at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, held annually in the U.S.
Having begun as the Intel Science Talent and Discovery Fair in 1999, IRIS has been nurturing the spirit of innovation among school students in India since 2006. The aim is to infuse the spirit of discovery in school children, increase their interest in science and technology, and build a robust scientific temper among the youth of the country.
Each year, research-based science projects by young students, across 21 subject categories—are reviewed by an eminent jury comprising of scientists and domain experts. Then, the short-listed entries are showcased at the annual IRIS National Fair.
In an effort to reach out to more students and gain wider participation, IRIS, in 2013, partnered with India’s 5 most influential school level science fairs to get rooted as one of the foremost research based science fairs in India.
