Prepare for your project's safety check! When you set up your project at Registration, it must have a safety inspection. These pages extracted from the Safety Inspector Training slide show (1.3MB PDF) describe items that may not be on your project display.
You can use items such as glass tubing, vinegar, and plant soil during your research, but please don't bring such items to the science fair. Take pictures of them! Put the pictures on your display.
Do you need these "unsafe" items at the science fair? No! Do your project ahead of time. At the science fair, describe what you did. The judges care that you can express your understanding of your project; they do not need you to reproduce the work in front of them.
Objects like these belong in a picture on your display board. Do not bring them to the science fair.
