Step 3: Is this project an Individual or Team Project?

Individual Project: A project in which one student works independently on one project.  An individual project can not start out as a team project and be converted to an individual project by eliminating team members. For projects that continue beyond one research year*, an individual project can be converted to a team project at the beginning of the next research year * and vice versa.

Team Project: A project in which two or three students worked together on one project.  Teams may not have started with more than three members and then be reduced to three members to qualify for WSSEF. Team membership cannot be changed during a given research year including converting from an individual project to a team project, or vice-versa. For projects that continue beyond one research year*, team members can change at the beginning of the next research year* including converting the project to an individual project and vice versa.
