Virtual Regeneron STS Code of Conduct

Attending the Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS) virtual showcase of projects is an opportunity to be part of a diverse community.  The ability to ask questions, share ideas, exchange opinions and provide feedback is integral to the experience, but must be done within the following guidelines.  The Society for Science is dedicated to providing a positive and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, ethnicity, race, religion, nationality or level of scientific knowledge.  We will not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form.

As an attendee of Regeneron STS, I agree to:

  • Be respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences and to be collegial and respectful in any questions or comments I post.
  • Be responsible in listening, viewing or reading carefully before commenting.  When posting I will be thoughtful and civil and will provide only constructive feedback.
  • Be in compliance with the Society for Science harassment policy.  In this online format, I recognize that harassment includes cyberbullying, trolling, the use of bad language, sexually explicit language or imagery, political attacks, racist language or imagery, personal attacks and posts that demean, insult, threaten or belittle other’s work. I recognize my responsibility to report any such harassment by others in good faith of healthy discourse. Report any incident to Society staff by emailing

I have read and understand the above rules and agree to adhere to them to the best of my ability.  I understand that failure to meet these standards may result in being removed from the event and banned from future events.


  1. The Society does not undertake to monitor every communication or the conduct of every attendee.
  2. The Society will work swiftly to promptly remove content which is reported as being in breach of this Code of conduct or the Terms and conditions but cannot guarantee to do so.
  3. The Society not endorse any opinions expressed by attendees.
  4. The Society reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to remove material at any time.
