ABSTRACT - TITLE - DISPLAY BOARD
The abstract is a complete written explanation of your investigation from the beginning to the end. It is usually about 250 words. It is often the part of the project that judges read first to decide whether or not the project is interesting. It should include:
Do not include any technical terms that most readers won't understand or abbreviations.
The title of your project takes center stage. It should be memorable and unique. The problem statement should NOT be the title of your project. However, a clever play on words reflecting your problem statement is a good choice. Here are some tips.
All projects are to be submitted on PowerPoint presentation. Only class winners are to be submitted on science display boards.
All of the components of your scientific investigation will be attached to your display board. It can reflect the content of your investigation. The display board must be a trifold and able to stand on its own. No names or faces should be recognizable. Place a sticker over any faces that appear in pictures and DO NOT write your name on the front. Make sure that everything is secured to the board since it will be transported from one place to another.
There is a lot of information that needs to be placed on the board. Everything has a place. Make sure you follow the display guidelines to get as many points as possible. If you find that you need more space than what is available on your board, you may make extra room by making foldable books and securing them to the board. Don't overdo it with the foldables.
