Why Science Fair Posters?

Making a large poster for science exhibition or for classroom projects can be a lot of fun for students. However, organizing their methods, results, and presenting it in an eye-catching way can take up a lot of time. Providing a science project template as a starting off point allows students to figure out what information is most important for their science exhibition poster design, so that they are able to customize their project without the added stress of choosing a layout or presentation structure. Students can easily print out their posters and add them to a science fair display board template, making it stand out anywhere from a small classroom to an exhibition hall! Of course, a Storyboard That poster board template can be used in many ways other than for science exhibition poster making. They can also be used to present research projects in science class and beyond!

    What to Include on Your Science Fair Poster

    When it comes to science projects and science fair posters, there are standard items that students should include to make their presentation amazing. Here are some ideas from the Storyboard That former teachers:

    1. A title: Your title should be clear, bold and colorful, and at the top of your poster. It should be brief, but accurately depict the jist of your project.
    2. Materials: Always include a neat and organized list of the materials that you used for your project.
    3. Hypothesis: What did you think would happen during your experiment? Write out your prediction. This step is skipped if you are not presenting findings from an experiment.
    4. Purpose: If you have conducted an experiment, what was the purpose of this experiment? Why did you choose to do this specific project?
    5. Questions: What questions did you encounter when completing your project? Challenges? Successes?
    6. Procedure: What were the steps that you took to complete your project or experiment? This should be in list form in chronological order.
    7. Visuals: Visuals could be images, photographs, diagrams, drawings, charts, graphs, or anything else that draws attention to your poster. Visuals should be neat, bright, bold, and colorful where applicable.
    8. Conclusion: You should always include a write-up that sums up your project or experiment. What did you learn? What would you do differently next time? Did you make any mistakes that you had to fix?

    Additional Tips

    Here are a few tips and tricks to make your science fair poster or your science project board template truly stand out!

    • If possible, it is best to type the text for your poster. It is darker and usually neater than handwritten text.
    • If you are typing, choose a font that you like, but that is also professional and clear. Cursive, fancy, or small font should be avoided, as well as overly bold font.
    • Be sure that all of the words on your poster are big and easy to read.
    • All visuals should be clear and related to the topic of your poster.
    • All pictures, drawings, charts, etc., should have clear captions that people can easily see.
    • Have a light color as the background of your poster, and include a border. Storyboard That has some amazing borders and patterns for you to use to make your poster unique and eye-catching.
    • If possible, use matte paper to print your poster. Glossy posters have a glare, making them more difficult to read.
    • When it comes to posters for school or a science fair display board template, less is more! Include everything that you have to include, but do not overdo it with tons of pictures and visuals. It makes the poster look sloppy and overdone.

      Storyboarding is an incredibly powerful tool for educators because it helps students process and understand the information in a deep, meaningful way. When students storyboard, they are actively engaged in the learning process and can make connections between the text and their own lives.

      Storyboards also promote higher-level thinking by encouraging students to synthesize information and think critically about what they have read. Finally, storyboards are a great way to assess student understanding because they provide a visual representation of student learning.
