Getting Started


I have an idea for a project now what do I do?????

Ideas to start you thinking
Planning and carrying out a valid investigation (PowerPoint Presentation; requires MS PowerPoint or OpenOffice)

Will my idea need approval??


In 2018, you will either fill in ONE or TWO forms. The first form is a safety form, to help check you will be safe doing your project. The second form is only needed if you choose to use LIVING THINGS (humans, animals, microorganisms). Teachers will be able to approve most projects themselves if they attend the Teacher workshop. The forms will be attached shortly so you can start your project. An information sheet also accompanies each form so you can fill it out correctly. Please do not start your project until your teacher tells you have approval.

Approval Forms

The forms will be on the website soon, you can download and fill them in electronically. Each form also comes with an information sheet. Please read the information sheet when filling in the form/s.
Once you have filled in the form, your teacher will check it, sign it and either say you can start or they may need to send it to mstf.approval@gmail.com to get approval.

Approval Dates

Approval applications will need to be completed by 31st May, 2018.
