Team Projects Alert: If a team project has students in more than one grade, then register the students as a project in the lowest grade  (i.e., If you have a 6th grader and a 7th grader doing a team project, you would choose the Grade 1 6 Projects link).

Step 3: Is this project an individual or team project? 

An Individual Project is defined as a project in which one student works independently on one project. Any student in grades 1 6 or equivalent is eligible. Note: Team projects can not be changed to an individual project during a given research year. For projects that continue beyond one year, individual projects can be converted to a team project in the next year. Click here if you are an Individual Project.

A Team Project is defined as a project in which two or three students worked together on one project. Any students in grades 1 6 or equivalent are eligible. NOTE: Teams may not have start 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 year, team members can change from year to the next including converting the project to an individual project.
