Yes, you may, but you should send your Research Plan Form 1A and B and (C and D if needed) to your regional fair chair to be sure you are doing a safe project for a middle school student. You may also send the forms to the MSEF Middle School Division Directors, if needed. On the Registration Form there is an abbreviated checklist of projects that are not allowed. A detailed description of the safety restrictions is described in the MSEF Middle School Manual. It is better to check before you start your project so you won’t be disqualified for safety reasons after you do all the work.
