Science Fair Project
How can I
make a display board for my science project?
|Making a display is how you
present your science project research and results to viewers or visitors.
Although making a display board is the
last step of a science project, it is very important for judges and can seriously
affect your grade.
This guideline is aimed to be a quick
reference for making a display board.
If you are a member of ScienceProject.com, make
sure to view more details and get help from your project advisor if any parts
are not clear to you.
In general the parts of a display are the same
parts that you have in your report; however a display will contain only an
abstract, not all the details.
The above diagram is what ScienceProject.com
suggests as the general layout of a display board for experimental (investigatory)
projects. The display is generally made from cardboard or foam board. What you
include in your display are:
- In the left pane write the abstract and the
- In the center pane write the title, and the
results in the form of graph and tables.
- In the right pane write the results and
You will not have the same requirements for an
engineering or a display project. If you are making a display for a display
project or engineering project, just select the important parts of your report
and include them in your display board.
Some of the other websites students may use for
their science project are:
ScienceProject.com is a source of information and support for students who
want to take their science project to a higher level and show the
applications of science in life, business and different industries. All
students can become a member in order to view a project guide and get
additional support on their projects.
Gathering material needed for a science fair project has always been a
challenge for students. MiniScience.com is an online store that provides
many of the material that students need for their science projects. These
material are sold individually or in the form of a science kit. Many of
MiniScience.com products make perfect gift for intelligent and curious
KidsLoveKits.com also known as klk.com are
alternatives to MiniScience.com focused on Science project kits and
Many science experiments require access to substances that are not easily
available to most students. ChemicalStore.com is where students can obtain
small amounts of chemicals at very low prices.
