Tips for Science Fair Project Presentation Boards

Scientists always report their results to other scientists and the public so we can all share in learning the new knowledge. The presentation board gives you that opportunity.

Make sure the writing on the board is easy to read – neat and large.

You can use additional pictures (drawn or from other resources – be sure to identify your sources!)

You can add borders or other embellishments to make your board scream “come look at me!”

Here is an example board from a prior year’s Science Fair.
