A Note on Fees:

The team registration fee is the fee for a team to participate in iGEM. All teams, wetlab, software and entrepreneurship pay the same fee. High school teams pay a high school fee. It is our intention that the team registration fees stay low for small teams and be larger for big teams. However it is not possible to achieve this for the team registration fee as teams are not yet fully formed and we do not want to limit team size. Instead, we achieve this through a low spring team registration fee and a separate per person Jamboree attendance fee that is meant to make up the difference.
