A group of children not exceeding five, can form the team and carry out the research project with the help of school teachers, coordinators of school science clubs, experts/ activists of science based voluntary organizations, research institutes etc. as guides.

General evaluation criteria for the projects are originality of idea and concept, relevance of the project to the theme, scientific understanding of the issue, data collection, analysis, experimentation/scientific study/validation, interpretation and problem solving attempt, team work, log book presentation and project display in exhibition booths, innovation and scope for improvement.
