• Safety Form (Step 4)

    It's Worth 10 Points!!!!  Don't Forget It!!!

    A parent-signed Safety Form MUST be submitted to Kirkwood at the same time you submit your Official Application and  Research and Safety Plan.   The deadline is December 14, 2022.

    The parent, guardian or teacher supervising should use his or her best judgment to ensure the safety of the student and any subjects (human or animals).

    Both the Safety Form and Research and Safety Plan should be emailed to STEAMFestForms@kirkwoodschools.org.  no later than December 14, 2022.  The body of your email should include the student's full name, school, grade, and teacher's full name.  

    Experiments using any of these will NOT be allowed:

    1. Alcohol
    2. Firearms
    3. Illegal drugs
    4. Bows and arrows
    5. Nerf guns or Nerf bows and arrows
    6. Power tools CANNOT be handled by students
    7. Prescription drugs
    8. Slingshots
    9. Mold
    10. Bacteria
    11. Viruses

     Human Informed Consent Form

    Do you have a participant or human subject for your project?  In addition to making sure that they cannot be identified in any way, you will need to use this form.

    No experiments should be done on humans that can cause any potential harm to the human.  Exceptions include observational type studies such as thinking-type exercises, etc.  Bottom line:  it is OK as long as there is no possible way that any person can be harmed.  You need written parental permission for students to be involved in any experiment – including taste testing.

    The Human Informed Consent form is used to provide information to the research participant (or parent or guardian) and to document written informed consent, minor assent, or parental permission.  Students may use the sample form provided in our link or may copy ALL elements of it into a new document.
