Slideshare uses cookies to improve functionality and performance, and to provide you with relevant advertising. PowerPoint presentations can be somewhat limiting to the creative nature many graphic designers have in creating something that actually resonates with an audience.
Pictures are worth a thousand words and if you’re able to incorporate more pictures as individual slides versus constant text in your slides, your message will be more powerful.
The power of the metaphor: when used in regular speech it can bring a conversation to life and when used in a presentation it can keep your audience engaged.
Don’t be shy in utilizing question and answer in certain strategic parts of the presentation.
For almost every science fair project, you need to prepare a display board to communicate your work to others. In most cases you will use a standard, three-panel display board that unfolds to be 36" tall by 48" wide. Organize your information like a newspaper so that your audience can quickly follow the thread of your experiment by reading from top to bottom, then left to right.
This sample shows how difficult it can be to read text when you print it on top of an image.
Print out or write your information on white paper that you will attach to your display board.
Matte paper is preferable to glossy because it won't show as much glare- glare makes your display board difficult to read.
Glue sticks (use plenty) or rubber cement work well for attaching sheets of paper to your display board. A bright border, like the red Project Popperz Border shown here, can liven up a project display board in a way that complements, rather than distracts, from the project information (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012).


If you need more room to fit all your data, use a display board header card for your science fair project title (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012). Using a colorful tri-fold display board, like this red one, for your science project can be a nice visual contrast to text and graphs printed on white paper (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012). Putting headings like Materials, Procedure, and Data in large fonts helps increase the readability of your project display board (image courtesy of Elmer's, 2012). If you choose to print your display board as a full size poster, consider mounting it on a tri-fold board, as shown here, to make it easy to set up free-standing on a table (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012). Thematic decorations can help set your science fair display board apart from the rest as long as the decorations do not make it difficult to see and read the project information. Contrasting colors, in this case yellow construction paper as the backing for text and images on a blue tri-fold display board, can help draw the attention of passer-bys (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012).
Adding models, like these turbines, to a display board can be a great way of conveying lots of information quickly.
Using large letters for your project title helps attract readers to your science project display board (image courtesy of Kim Mullin, 2012).
An eye catching color scheme, like this alternating blue and red on a black tri-fold display board, can help your project stand out at the science fair. If your experimental setup is small enough and easily transported you may want to set it up in front of your science project display board. At most science fairs, like the one shown here, the project display boards must be free-standing.
Are the sections on your display board organized like a newspaper so that they are easy to follow? Does the title catch people's attention, and is the title font large enough to be read from across the room?


Did you use pictures and diagrams to effectively convey information about your science fair project? Did you follow all of the rules pertaining to display boards for your particular science fair? You may print and distribute up to 200 copies of this document annually, at no charge, for personal and classroom educational use. Reproduction of material from this website without written permission is strictly prohibited. To make it easy for you, I have added a gist of what I said on every slide in the black rectangular box.
Include each step of your science fair project: Abstract, question, hypothesis, variables, background research, and so on. Use photos or draw diagrams to present non-numerical data, to propose models that explain your results, or just to show your experimental setup.
A common technique is to put sheets of construction paper behind the white paper containing your text.
Large font, good color combinations, and neatness will help your project display board stand out and be easily read. People enjoy hearing a presenter speak to a slide rather than having to choose between reading bullet points and listening to the presenter.
